Carlos Vicario’s group has deposited 14 lines of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells or iPSCs) in the National Bank of Cell Lines (BNLC) of the ISCIII. These cells have been derived from patients with Parkinson’s disease (5 lines), from patients with Alzheimer’s disease (6 lines) and from healthy subjects (3 lines). iPSCs allow us to obtain human neurons and glial cells to study mechanisms of neurodegeneration and neuroprotection in these diseases. We have published 6 articles in the Stem Cell Research journal describing the generation and characterization of iPSCs (see: Rodríguez-Traver et al. and Díaz-Guerra et al. 2019 and 2020.
