Dr. Jürgen Knoblich is Scientific Director of the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology at the Austrian Academy of Sciences. The Knoblich lab is known for the development of an organoid model of early brain development, and is currently using iPSCs and cerebral organoids to investigate inter-brain region interactions, neurodevelopmental disorders, and neuronal connections and functions.

Dr. Madeline Lancaster is a Group Leader at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK. The Lancaster lab has developed cerebral organoids as a model system to better understand human brain evolution, development, and neurodevelopmental disorders. She joined us to discuss her research presentated at the ISSCR 2020 conference.
