Cells carrying Parkinson's mutation could lead to new model for studying disease
on February 27, 2020 at 7:42 pm
Parkinson's disease researchers have used gene-editing tools to introduce the disorder's most common genetic mutation into marmoset monkey stem cells and to successfully tamp down cellular chemistry that often goes awry in Parkinson's patients.
