Our new work is now in

Cell Stem Cell!! (in press)

 

 

Do brain organoids also assemble eye-like structures?

We could engineer brain organoids to develop bilaterally symmetric optic vesicles-Complex structures within a single organoid!


These organoids will help decode the mechanisms of forebrain development and to model neuroretinal disorders.
