Background: Microglia are central nervous system innate immune support cells that function remarkably like peripheral macrophages . Microglia continually monitor neuronal function through direct cell-cell contacts and exert neuroprotective effects in response to stress . By maintaining brain homeostasis, clearing cellular debris , pruning synapses , and eliminating protein aggregates , microglia play key roles in neurodevelopment , Alzheimer’s Disease , Parkinson’s Disease , ALS , traumatic brain injury , and many other central nervous system conditions
Vala Sciences, together with iXCells Biotechnologies, is proud to offer hiPSC-derived microglia for research and drug discovery. Suited for experiments in monoculture or in co-culture with hiPSC-derived neurons, our microglia will drive hiPSC-based neuroscience research forward.
