Induced pluripotent stem cell-based modeling in brain disease research


Date : 8 December 2020

8:15 – 11:25 EST

ZOOM (Registration Required: Eventbrite

The Joint McGill-ZNZ Workshop is a component of a longstanding partnership between McGill University and the Neuroscience Center Zurich (ZNZ).  

This successful partnership promotes student mobility and training, and leverages seed funding to apply for external research grants, a key objective of this collaborative program. By providing a framework to promote and sustain ambitious research projects in emerging fields of neuroscience, the partnership facilitates exciting new international synergies and exchanges, exposing researchers to different scientific cultures. 

This year’s workshop (program attached) focuses on Induced pluripotent stem cell-based modeling in brain disease research.  This workshop will focus on iPSC-based investigations in research areas of mutual interest in the fields of neurodevelopment, neurodevelopmental conditions and neurodegenerative diseases.


We hope you will join us

Wolfgang Knecht (ZNZ), Fritjof Helmchen (ZNZ), Anne McKinney (McGill), and Stefano Stifani (The Neuro-McGill)
