Dissecting Growth Properties of Normal and Tumorigenic Neural Stem Cells
Neural stem cells are capable of dividing both symmetrically and asymmetrically to expand their population or give rise to differentiated progeny. The Porter lab focuses on understanding how the cell regulates these cues during normal development and what can go wrong to drive populations of stem-like brain tumour initiating cells in human glioma.
