The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, NINDS, operating as part of the National Institutes of Health, NINDS supports a diverse array of research on stem cells, from studies of the basic biology of stem cells in the developing and adult mammalian brain, to studies focusing on nervous system disorders such as ALS or spinal cord injury. Other examples of NINDS funded research include using iPS cells to derive dopamine-producing neurons that might alleviate symptoms in patients with Parkinson’s disease, and using ES cells to generate cerebral organoids to model Zika virus infection.
