Modeling Neural Diseases In Vitro

Neural cell culture models mimic the brain microenvironment and provide physiologically relevant information for drug discovery.

The brain contains neurons and different types of glial cells, such as astrocytes and microglia, that perform unique functions. Most tissue models for complex brain diseases lack physiological relevance because they fail to recapitulate nuanced interactions between different cells and the brain microenvironment. In this webinar, brought to you by FUJIFILM Cellular Dynamics, Sean Ryan and Marc Ferrer will explore strategies to develop in vitro cellular models for neural diseases and their advantages for drug discovery.

Topics to be covered

  • Modeling neurodegeneration in neural tricultures
  • Generating 3D neural disease models for drug development
