Scientists Find Way to Create Models of CMT Motor Neurons for Research

A new protocol allows researchers to generate spinal motor neurons derived from Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) patients, creating useful models for better understanding the disease and investigating responses to potential therapies. The protocol was described in “Optimized Protocol to Generate Spinal Motor Neuron Cells from Induced Pluripotent Stem…
