Advancing Neurosphere Research with 3D Cell Culture

Presented by

Roxana Ghadessy, Ph.D.

About this talk

Neurosphere formation of human neural stem cells (hNSCs) is a widely used in vitro culture system to study neurogenesis, neural development, neurotoxicity, and neurodegenerative disease models. This system allows for three-dimensional (3D) expansion of hNSCs within a more physiologically relevant microenvironment. Having an easy-to-use, reproducible neurosphere culture and analysis method to understand hNSC dynamics greatly enables their use for drug discovery and cell therapy applications. In this webinar, learn how Corning® spheroid microplates provide an ideal tool to study neurosphere formation, proliferation, differentiation, migration, and neurotoxicity of hNSCs, in an easy-to-use format amenable to high throughput screening.
