Project Description

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is committed to providing well characterized cell sources to both academic and industry investigators to advance the study of neurological disorders. Cell sources currently include fibroblasts and/or induced pluripotent stem cells for Alzheimer’s Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Ataxia-telangiectasia, Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (FTD), Huntington’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and healthy controls. Cell sources, including isogenic cell lines for current and new diseases covered by the NINDS will be added over the next several years. The NINDS Human Cell and Data Repository (NHCDR) at RUCDR Infinite Biologics provides new tools for analytics, searching and ordering for all components of the repository.
