Mini Brains

Disease-specific organoids are the new frontier in biomedical research and Dr. Eva Feldman and Biointerfaces Institute Director Dr. Jeorg Lahann are leading the way. They will take stem cells from the ALS Center of Excellence’s biorepository to grow ALS and healthy “mini-brains” to offer a new avenue of research that will greatly reduce the time and resources necessary to reach interventions and treatments for ALS.
