Webinar: Human Neurons in Vitro: Next-Gen Models for Neurological Disease
This is an Incucyte sponsored webinar organized by Cell Press, originally aired on 4th December 2018.
The ability to generate and manipulate human neurons in vitro is an exciting advance that enables the validation, modeling and screening of drugs or phenotypes with human neurons to better understand and develop treatments for neurological disorders and disease. This Cell Press Webinar will feature the latest advances in generating and studying human neurons in vitro and the opportunities they offer for therapeutic discovery.
In this webinar, you'll hear from three leaders in the field: Kristen Brennand (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai), Marius Wernig (Stanford University), and Steven Finkbeiner (Gladstone Institute at UCSF). Each will present work done in their labs to develop in vitro models from healthy individuals and patients to investigate the underlying mechanisms of neural function and disorders.
