Description

Description

The overall purpose of this project is to overcome a critical barrier in the field of autism research; namely, accessibility to statistically relevant numbers of patient-derived neural tissues. This novel strategy, which is based on considerable human neural stem cell (NSC), human embryonic stem cell (ESC), and biorepository experience, is to obtain fibroblasts from specific autism and control patients, derive induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from the fibroblasts, differentiate NSCs from the iPSCs, characterize and contrast and compare these cells using gene microarray and bioinformatics techniques, and provide the cells to specific autism researchers.
