Watch the Summer School 2018 online

Virtually attend the FENS SfN Summer School 2018 on Neural stem cells, brain organoids and brain repair, which was held on 3 - 9 June 2018 in Bertinoro, Italy.

Start with the interview of the scientific organisers to know what they had in mind while preparing the school:




Madeline A. Lancaster (MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, UK)
on Modeling human brain development in cerebral organoids

Lorenz Studer (Center for Stem Cell Biology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, USA)
on Building and repairing the human nervous system using pluripotent cell-derived lineages


Barbara Treutlein (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, DE)
on Reconstructing human neurogenesis using single-cell transcriptomics

Juergen A. Knoblich(Austrian Acadamy of Sciences, AT)
on Cerebral organoids – modelling human brain development and tumorigenesis in stemcell derived 3D culture


Arnold Kriegstein(Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research, USA )
on An in vitro approach to the study of human brain developments and evolution

Hank Greely(International Neuroethics Society/Stanfor Center for Law and the Biosciences)
