This method may be used in the future to treat neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.Stem-cell biologist Duanqing Pei along with researchers from Guangzhou Institutes of Biomedicine and Health in China has shown that kidney cells from urine can be turned into neural progenitor cells.
