Nature Research Round Table: Progress and Challenges in Organoid Models of Human Brain Development

Dr. Madeline Lancaster discusses how brain organoids can be used to model human neurogenesis and neuronal migration, and how her lab has recently cultured brain organoids at the air-liquid interface. Dr. Lancaster is a Group Leader at the Medical Research Council (MRC) Laboratory of Molecular Biology at the University of Cambridge.

This presentation was part of a Round Table series titled “Advances in Organoid Applications”, organized in partnership with Nature Research and held at the Springer Nature headquarters in London, UK in June 2019. There, global organoid experts gathered to discuss the current state of the technology. Core discussions centered around protocol standardization, translation into patient care, nomenclature, and understanding what questions a given organoid culture can and can’t answer.
