NSC systems present unique opportunities that are starting to be successfully explored for genetic and chemical screening. These systems provide the possibility of identifying and optimizing molecules/drugs that could lead to the tighter control in self-renewal and lineage specification of NSCs as well as their functional maturation. This could be crucial in moving forward NSC-based therapies. It is expected that recent advances in the method of producing NSCs from patient-specific human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells and in the technologies to grow them in vitro, while preserving their full developmental potential, will allow a full exploitation of NSCs both in drug discovery programs and in predictive toxicology studies.
