“The Human Brain” Featuring Dr. Sergiu Pașca

Dr. Sergiu Pașca is the Kenneth T. Norris, Jr. Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University and the Bonnie Uytengsu and Family Director of the Stanford Brain Organogenesis Program. His lab has pioneered and applied neural organoid and assembloid technologies to make discoveries in fundamental and clinical neuroscience. He talks about the response to his viral TED Talk and the importance of names for nervous system models. He also discusses CRISPR screening in assembloids to study autism, transplanting cortical organoids into rats, and biocompatible polymers for neural organoids.

Dr. Sergiu Pașca is a pioneer in neuroscience at Stanford University and a returning guest on the show. His laboratory has had a rapid rise to prominence in the stem cell field, developing cutting edge technologies such as cortical assembloids to study a variety of neurodevelopmental disorders.
