Dr. Lucio Costa and co-workers describe six different behavioral tests in the three main areas affected in ASD (repetitive behavior, communication, social interactions).
New protocols for the isolation of UC-MSCs are explored, including several helpful, individual protocols to aid quality control and ensure that the UC-MSCs are characterized thoroughly while improving yield.
Combining the high-throughput and large scale analysis of fluorescence microscopy with the enhanced resolution capabilities of electron microscopy can allow imaging of cellular interactions and mechanisms without being limited by resolution.

Research may well be a creative, fluid and dynamic field, but structure and high standards are required for success.
A detailed protocol to assess microRNA function in explanted organs is presented.
A protocol for a unique high-throughput assay to identify novel small-molecule inhibitors of cell migration.
A robust and reproducible method for “direct programming” of acinar cells into functional beta cells with a polycistronic viral construct and viral transduction of pancreatic tissue in vivo in mice is described.
