How would you explain your research in 3 sentences to someone who is not in Science?
Dementia is a leading neurodegenerative disease which is untreatable till date. Therefore we want to use an alternative strategy of stem cell therapy using an animal model to study their efficacy in disease treatment and also to better understand about the molecular players involved in reversal of disease condition.
