Training on Advanced Stem Cell Technologies in Neurology

Project description

Advanced in vitro models of neurological disorders

The increasing prevalence and long-term impairments of neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases necessitate novel treatments. However, this has been met with limited success due to the lack of appropriate disease models. The mission of the EU-funded ASCTN-Training project is to train young researchers in building robust in vitro models to study the mechanisms of neurological disorders. Research activities include the design and optimisation of 3D stem cell-based organoids and brain-on-chip technologies that reproduce brain circuits in vitro. The work will contribute to a better understanding of neurological disorders and is expected to accelerate drug discovery efforts.
