Cortex Shatters the Glass Ceiling

Edmund Au, Gord Fishell

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Recreating developmental structures in vitro has been a primary challenge for stem cell biologists. Recent studies in Cell Stem Cell (Eiraku et al., 2008) and Nature (Gaspard et al., 2008) demonstrate that embryonic stem cells can recapitulate early cortical development, enabling them to generate specific cortical subtypes.
