Phenotypic profiling and iron overload of sensory neurons derived from Friedrich’s ataxi iPSC

June 12th 2017

Our poster 'Phenotypic profiling and iron overload of sensory neurons derived from Friedrich’s ataxi iPSC' will be presented on Wednesday 14th June at ISSCR 2017 at 7.30pm by Rachel Steeg, PHD, Project Lead, in the Exhibit Hall of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

Friedreich’s ataxia (FA) is an autosomal recessive disease that causes progressive damage to the central and peripheral nervous system. Damage results in neuronal loss which affects multiple systems and basic functioning.

The discovery of iPSC technology in 2006 has now allowed the development of patient derived sensory neurons that are relevant to the disease phenotype.

The poster describes phenotypic data of two iPSC derived sensory neuronal lines–one with a FA genotype and a gene edited corrected control.
