Potential of cell therapy to treat Hirschsprung’s disease
Infants born with Hirschsprung's disease lack enteric neurons in the distal bowel. In this project you will examine potential sources of cells to generate enteric neurons for use in cell therapy. Potential sources of enteric neurons will be tested in vivo using a mouse model of Hirschsprung's disease.
