Together with working groups from Göttingen and Amsterdam, scientists from the lab of Prof. Oliver Brüstle (University Hospital Bonn (UKB)) developed a new model for the analysis of brain diseases. The new cell model is standardized and scalable and therefore promising for applications in pharmaceutical research. It can be used to analyze and compare signaling in cells from healthy and diseased patients. Interestingly, the model exists of only a single nerve cell derived from human skin cells.
