Researchers Convert Human Skin Cells Directly into Brain cells

Scientists are transforming human skin cells directly into a specific type of brain cell affected by Huntington’s disease, an ultimately fatal neurodegenerative disorder. Dissimilar to other strategies that turn one cell type into another, this new process does not pass through a stem cell phase, avoiding the production of multiple cell types.  More...
