Lab Head: Femke-de Vrij
Our group works closely together with the Kushner lab to study the underlying mechanisms of psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders. We have established a variety of human induced pluripotent stem cell models for obtaining defined brain cell types and neural networks. Comparison of control and diseased human brain cells and 3D organoids allows us to study and manipulate human neurobiological mechanisms, focusing on genetic candidate variants for psychiatric disorders.
There are currently no vacancies on our lab.
