Thesis Title
Characterization of neural stem/precursor cell (NPC) immuno modulatory properties
Abstract
Somatic stem cell-based therapies protect the central nervous system (CNS) from chronic inflammation-driven degeneration, such as that occurring in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and stroke. It was first...
