Project: 3d Model of the braIN to stimulate the DevelopMent of drugs for Alzheimer’s disease Patients

Acronym MINDMAP (Reference Number: 113501)
Duration 01/10/2019 - 03/10/2022
Project Topic This project will transform drug development for Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) by delivering MINDMAP, an in vitro model for neuronal activity in healthy and AD-affected human brains. 3D cultures of human stem cell-derived neurons will be integrated in a microfluidic chip, delivering a brain-on-chip (BoC). Combining the BoC with dynamic optical imaging functionalities, MINDMAP will be the first capable of generating sensitive high-resolution readouts of neuronal network activity at single-cell level.
