Sylvain Lehmann, Ph.D.


Institute for Regenerative Medicine and Biotherapy, University of Montpellier, France

Grant Year: 


In this project, Dr. Lehmann will build a 3D human cell culture model that will emulate, “in a dish,” the very complex structure of the human brain. Using such a model will greatly increase the relevance of mechanistic and therapeutic studies to humans. This model will allow him to study prion propagation and subsequently develop high throughput drug screening experiments.
