Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) are developmentally pluripotent cells isolated from pre-implantation mammalian embryos. In cell culture ES cells can be easily differentiated to generate cultures of neural progenitors. We present a simple method for the cryopreservation of these ES-derived neural progenitors. Cryopreserved neural progenitor stocks can be(More)
Neural cultures derived from differentiating embryonic stem (ES) cells are a potentially powerful in vitro model of neural development. We show that neural cells derived from mouse ES cells express mRNAs characteristic of GABAergic neurons. The glutamate decarboxylase genes (Gad1 and Gad2), required for GABA synthesis and the vesicular inhibitory amino acid(More)
Prior research has established diversity as a topic of empirical analysis in the vascular surgery literature. Building on the work of previously published articles on diversity in the Journal of Vascular Surgery and elsewhere, this article engages in a broad discussion of diversity in two interrelated arenas: educational/workplace diversity and culturally(More)
