RettEd: Mini Brains in Space – Pushing the Limits of Science
May 12 @ 1:00 pm

Award-winning neuroscientist and Rett syndrome expert Dr. Alysson Muotri, Director of the Stem Cell Program at the University of California at San Diego, will share how he and his lab are pushing the limits of science in the name of your child with Rett syndrome.

Dr. Mutori’s lab uses animal models, neural stem cells, human and other primates’ pluripotent cells, and several tools to investigate brain development, evolution, and neural disorders, including Rett syndrome.

Dr. Muotri has received recent headline attention for his experiment to study the impact of microgravity on human brain development, research which could improve disease modeling for neurodegenerative and developmental disorders as well as give clues into the future of humanity in space.

Questions and comments submitted in advance will be addressed, and there will be plenty of time for write-in questions during the session.
