Departments & Organizations

Psychiatry: Neural Transplant and Neurobehavior Program | Redmond Lab

Stem Cell Center, Yale

Office of Cooperative Research


Our group was the first to achieve functional restoration of parkinsonism in monkeys using transplanted neural cells, which we also studied in human patients. Since then we have been working to develop more effective replacement strategies using viral vector delivered growth factors and better cells derived from stem cells. We are comparing cells derived from somatic pluripotent stem cells with those from nuclear transfer using genomics and functional implantation into parkinsonian monkeys. I have also built a primate research facility in the Caribbean where much of the monkey work occurs, along with a broad range of medical research and treatment studies.
