Neuroscientists develop ‘meta-cell’ to move Alzheimer’s fight forward

University of California, Irvine neuroscientists probing the gene changes behind Alzheimer’s disease have developed a process of making a “meta-cell” that overcomes the challenges of studying a single cell. Their technique has already revealed important new information and can be used to study other diseases throughout the body. Details about the meta-cell—created by researchers with the UCI Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders, known as UCI MIND—are published in the online journal Cell Reports Methods.
