The generation of competently functional human neurons in vitro is crucial to accurately model degeneration of the nervous system and to provide invaluable insights into fundamental neurobiology.
In this exciting multidisciplinary project, we will combine the latest advancements in nanoengineered technologies, microfabrication at the cell-material interface and restorative neuroscience to develop a platform that will investigate stem cell-derived human neurons for both fundamental neurobiology and regenerative medicine purposes.
