Podcast: SCAHT researcher David Pamies discusses the use of brain organoids to study toxicity

SCAHT researcher David Pamies from the University of Lausanne, discusses the potential of brain organoids to study the neurotoxic effects of compounds. Pamies is talking on Future Tech Podcast, a programme which aims to explain the risks and potentials of new technologies. Pamies and colleagues in Lausanne are developing so-called organotypic brain cultures, which consist of different types of human brain cells. These neural tissues could in the future allow for better safety assessment of chemicals. Listen to podcast.
