Studies of influenza transmission are necessary to predict the pandemic potential of emerging influenza viruses. Currently, both ferrets and guinea pigs are used in such studies, but these species are distantly related to humans. Nonhuman primates (NHP) share a close phylogenetic relationship with humans and may provide an enhanced means to model the(More)
Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived neurons represent an opportunity for cell replacement strategies for neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease (PD). Improvement in cell graft targeting, distribution, and density can be key for disease modification. We have previously developed a trajectory guide system for real-time intraoperative(More)
