ALS Research Suggests Stem Cells for Studies Should Be 'Aged' to Speed Progress Toward Finding Potential Treatments

Cedars-Sinai scientists are seeking to build an improved stem-cell model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) to accelerate progress toward a cure for the devastating neurological disorder. Their findings demonstrate that current models can be enhanced by the aging of motor neurons to show how ALS damages cells later in life.
