STRATEGIC INITIATIVE

An Investigational Platform of the Human Brain for Understanding Complex Neural Function

Nicholas Fischer (17-SI-002)

 

We are developing a fully validated and functional first-of-its-kind model of the central nervous system that recreates the human brain's microenvironment and architecture. >>
