Students in Dan Lim's lab have discovered an RNA molecule that can be manipulated to increase the production of neurons from neural stem cells. The research, co-authored by DSCB student Rebecca Andersen and Alex Ramos, PhD, was published on March 19, 2015 in Cell Stem Cell. The work has possible applications in regenerative medicine.
