BRAIN organoids unTanglement with SERS

Project description

Biochemical characterisation of in vitro brain organoids

Neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders are characterised by complex symptoms and are difficult to classify and study due to a lack of reliable biological models. The EU-funded BRAINtSERS project aims to test the accuracy of protocols involving current brain organoids to represent an in vitro model of the brain and to further promote their technological development thorough the use of human stem cells. Researchers plan to characterise these brain organoids during all developmental stages and identify key biomolecules. Long-term, the BRAINtSERS in vitro system will have the potential to be applied in basic research but also for pharmaceutical testing, addressing a medical issue of great social and economic importance.
