Fusing human retinal cells with adult stem cells could be a potential therapeutic strategy to treat retinal damage and visual impairment. We show that cell fusion between Muller Glia cells and adult stem cells can take place in human retinal model systems. The hybrids cells can differentiate towards neural fate and have potential to regenerate the tissue.
