Title | Advanced Functional Characterization of iPSC-Derived In Vitro Models in Disease Modelling and Artificial Intelligence

Abstract | Two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) cell cultures, designed to mimic in vivo conditions to varying extents, particularly when derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), serve as a valuable substitute for conventional animal models. These cellular models not only provide a crucial avenue in disease modeling but also offer significant opportunities in artificial intelligence. Our guest speakers will explore innovative applications and methodologies of iPSC-derived neural cultures for modeling neurodegeneration and showcasing the computational capabilities of 3D biological neural networks. Following the seminar, we will engage in an interactive Q&A session to shed light on diverse perspectives regarding the future of iPSC in vitro models.

Dr. Marián Hruška-Plocháň
Polymenidou Lab, University of Zurich, Switzerland

Presentation Title:
iNets – novel human neural networks to study neurodegenerative diseases

Short Bio:
Dr. Marián Hruška-Plocháň is passionate about fighting neurodegenerative diseases. His current research focuses on TDP-43 and C9orf72 ALS/FTD-associated proteinopathies.
To tackle these diseases, he developed iNets, a unique human neural network model. iNets lets him study ALS/FTD pathology directly in human neurons, astrocytes, and microglia upon their embedding. This makes it ideal for deciphering disease mechanisms and testing potential therapies – including gene therapies, small molecules, and immunotherapies. iNets are also compatible with HD-MEA applications. His background spans molecular biology, cell and developmental biology, neuroscience, and gene/cell therapy.
