We would like to announce the lecture that will be held by Academician Milena Stevanović as part of the event: „European Researchers’ Night 2022“ and the “Fascination by innovation” activity. The lecture will be held on the 1 st of October 2022, starting at 5 p.m. in the Gallery of Science and Technology of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Đure Jakšića 2)
“The brain in a petri dish: The STREAMLINE project and innovative approaches for disease modeling“
Neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) are caused by alterations in early brain development and for their research, cutting-edge technology must be applied. The STREAMLINE project allows researchers to use the newest state-of-the-art technology for neurodevelopmental disorders based on the use of stem cells and brain organoids. These innovative technologies will improve our understanding of the processes involved in brain development and advance our understanding of brain disorders. The project will contribute to the discovery of molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental disorders as well as the development of novel potential therapeutics and their testing on these stem cell-based model systems.
