3D brain models advance Alzheimer's disease research at Mayo Clinic

By Susan Buckles @susanbuckles
A 3D model of brain organoids — "a minibrain in a dish" — mimics human brain structure and provides a new scientific strategy for exploring the pathology of Alzheimer's disease, Mayo Clinic research discovered. The study, which was published in Nature Communications, finds that the minibrain — an induced pluripotent [...]
