In this webinar, Max Myers presented his work on the use of autologous bone marrow-derived stem cells injected into the cortex of rats, following a stable stroke. Max also demonstrated its lab’s findings and talked about the Aspect Imaging M7 compact MRI system as it relates to its use in this project.

Key Points:

  • The critical use of stem cells in stroke research
  • Overcoming the blood-brain barrier via intracerebral injection of stem cells
  • The introduction of stem cells led to improved functional recovery following an ischemic stroke
  • How MRI can contribute to the understanding of treatments following stroke
