Our research aims to understand the mechanisms that underlie neurological disorders and develop personalized therapeutic approaches for patients. We use patient-specific stem cells to recreate diseases in a dish. Through our collaboration with our industry partners we develop physiological human models, that faithfully mimic the biology of the human body.

Traditional culture systems fail to represent the complexity of our physiology. The solution to some of these problems lies in microfluidic devices, also known as organs-on-chip or microphysiological devices that provide 3D multicellular architectures and can mimic tissue-tissue inter­faces, physicochemical microenvironments and vascular perfusion of the body, giving levels of tissue and organ functionality not attainable with conventional 2D or 3D culture systems. In collaboration with our commercial partners we bioengineered a platform of the human BBB, specifically designed for predictive personalized medicine, which we can now use to study the role of the BBB in neurological diseases.

This is an exciting time to join our newly established lab at the state-of-the-art Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell (RMSC) Research Center. Technicians, MSc and PhD students, as well as Postdoctoral positions are available now. If you are passionate about science, research and innovation, and you are motivated, ambitious and driven; we want you to be part of our team.
