Food For Thought: Engineering Brain-Like Tissues to Study Neurological Diseases

Neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease (AD0 affect the brain, the most complex organ in the human body. To aid in the understanding of key elements contributing to the onset and progression of neurodegenerative disorders, new strategies involving the use of stem cells and novel biomaterials are being implemented. Professor Munoz Pinto will describe a systematic approach for the design and fabrication of brain-like tissues that facilitate the study of neurological diseases. For more about your speaker, Trinity Professor Dany Munoz Pinto, Ph.D.

 

The Trinity University Food for Thought Series has offered enlightening lectures around a common table for more than 30 years. Each lecture features esteemed faculty and alumni experts, who have presented on topics from science and ecology to the arts and culture.
