3D Cellular Models of Brain and Neurodegeneration

Brain organoids are three-dimensional in vitro cellular models of the brain that can recapitulate many processes such as the neurodevelopment. In addition, these organoids can be combined with other cell types, such as neurons and astrocytes to study their interactions in assembloids. Disease processes can also be modeled by induced pluripotent stem cell-derived organoids and assembloids from patients with neurodegenerative disorders. Discover the latest research on the models here.


TAR DNA-binding protein 43 (TDP-43) is a pathological protein identified in sporadic Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to TDP-43 and these diseases.

ALS: Genetics

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by muscle weakness. ALS is a genetically heterogeneous disorder with several causative genes. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to the genetics of this disease.

ALS: Pathogenic Mechanisms

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by muscle weakness. Here is the latest research investigating pathogenic mechanisms that underlie this genetically heterogeneous disorder.

ALS: Phenotypes

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized phenotypically by progressive muscle weakness. Clinical phenotypes of ALS can be classified based on the pattern, level, and area of onset (e.g. bulbar, cervical, lumbar). Here is the latest research investigating phenotypes of ALS.

ALS: Prions

Prions are misfolded proteins which characterize several fatal neurodegenerative diseases. Prion-like mechanisms are associated with the pathogenesis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Here is the latest research on ALS and prions.

ALS: Stress Granules

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by cytoplasmic protein aggregates within motor neurons. TDP-43 is an ALS-linked protein that is known to regulate splicing and storage of specific mRNAs into stress granules, which have been implicated in formation of ALS protein aggregates. Here is the latest research in this field.

ALS: Therapies

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is associated with the death of neurons that control voluntary muscles. This feed followes the latest research into therapies for this progressive neurodegenerative disease.

Age-related Dementia

Dementias are a group of conditions, including Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, and frontotemporal dementia, characterized by deficiencies in cognitive abilities. Age-related dementia refers to dementias that occur in older individuals, usually 60+ years old, in contrast to early-onset dementia. Follow the latest research on age-related dementia here.

Alexander Disease

Alexander disease is a rare leukodystrophy caused by mutations in the astrocyte-specific intermediate filament protein glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP). Here is the latest research on this disease.
