Our Alzheimer’s disease model in zebrafish is used for validating a drug that prevents loss of neuronal connections

A collaborative work led by Jared Sterneckert, and in which Kizil Lab was also involved, is now published in the journal Stem Cell Reports, the official journal of International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR). This study identified a lead compound that inhibits CDK5 and GSK3β, and is neuroprotective in vitro and in vivo. Prabesh …

Novel traumatic injury model of human brain developed in Kizil Lab
