Centrosomes and cilia in brain development and cancer




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.
