Event Description: 

Human pluripotent stem cells hold promise for identifying molecular, cellular and circuit defects for patients with complex brain disorders. Over the last several years significant advances have been made toward the development of organoid and microphysiological systems that model the complex cellular and circuit architecture of the brain using patient-derived stem cells. 

This workshop will focus on the application of these 3D model systems for studying brain disorders arising from genetic mutations, environmental challenges and pathogen exposure.
