|Next Generation Disease Modeling
Cerebral organoids have revolutionized our ability to study human neurological development and disease. Pairing these physiologically relevant cerebral organoid models with new advancements in genome editing technology has further enabled researchers to answer questions in ways they never thought possible. Watch our virtual poster presentation to see how our scientists generated gene-edited cerebral organoids to model microcephaly.
CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing of Cerebral Organoids to Model Microcephaly
In this virtual poster presentation, Leon Chew discusses his work gene editing cerebral organoids to model microcephaly. Chew will walk you through how he used CRISPR-Cas9 to generate a mutated hPSC cell line, characterized the stable clones for cell quality attributes, and differentiated the cells to cerebral organoids.
