OVERVIEW OF PHD PROJECT

The major aim of my PhD studies is to model human neurogenesis in physiological and pathological conditions by developing a suitable in vitro 3D culture system using human pluripotent stem cells. Modelling human neurogenesis in vitro would represent a unique tool to elucidate many aspects of those mechanisms that lead to the high complexity of the human brain and to neurological disorders. Additionally such a model will provide a platform to test new drugs as well as a cell source for regenerative medicine therapy.
