Congratulations to Drs Wei and Ping Yu on funding of a 5-year R01 grant: "Application of optogenetics in iPS cell transplantation therapy for ischemic stroke". Principle investigators include Dr. Wei (contact PI), Dr. Shan Ping Yu, and Dr. Robert Gross (Neurosurgery Department).   The investigation is to explore a novel application of the innovative technology optogenetics in cell-based regenerative therapy. we propose to improved cell quality and differentiation potential of induced pluripotent (iPS) stem cells using optogenetics combined with an enriched endogenous environment in the post ischemic brain. The results from this study may provide a novel combination therapy for ischemic stroke and neurodegenerative disorders
