Micro-RNA regulation in pluripotent stem cells  

With this grant, researchers will develop and refine methods for producing viable embryonic pluripotent stem cells from macaque monkeys. These cells are important and have the potential of treating a wide range of disorders such as Parkinson's diabetes, autism, heart disease, Alzheimer's, etc. Project Status
