Growing Brain Cells and Neurological Disease in a Dish

Event Description

In this discovery session you’ll discover the innovative and brilliant work being done in the bronwen connor lab by one of her past postgraduate PhDs, Amy McCaughey-Chapman. This work is called “cell reprogramming” and can be used to conduct research into specific diseases.

Amy will be explaining how they grow the cells in the lab, what kind of work can be done with them and what she has used these cells for in the past which has also developed a unique way in which scientists can grow cells from specific parts of the brain tailored for specific purposes and potentially specific disease research.
