Dr Madeline Lancaster is a leading a group in the Cell Biology Division of the Medical Research Council (MRC) Laboratory of Molecular Biology. She completed her PhD at the University of California in 2010. Her research focuses on the study of human brain development, which can be modelled in a dish through an in-vitro model called “cerebral organoids”. Her talk will be focusing on these self-organising tissues which develop from human pluripotent stem cells. They can model many key aspects of early human brain development and a variety of neurodevelopmental disorders.
