Hannover, DE / Brimingham, UK / February 2020 / New view on laser fabricated scaffolds.

Laser fabricated scaffolds represent an attractive 3D culture platform for the development of in vitro 3D modelling tools in neuroscience.
The image on the right shows a 3D human iPSC-derived neuronal network developed in a laser fabricated scaffold. Green: neurons stained with MAP2 neuronal marker; Blue: DAPI nuclear staining. 70 days in culture.

[Hannover, DE / Brimingham, UK / March 20th, 2019 / Laser nanoFab GmbH has had a new proposal selected for funding by the EU through the FET (Future Emerging Technologies) Launchpad scheme in cooperation with Aston University, a partner in EU-funded MESO-BRAIN project.

The FET Launchpad scheme is available only to existing or recently ended FET projects to encourage development of innovative ideas emerging from a project to be accelerated through separate and dedicated, Launchpad funding.

2019 logo meso brainOne of the aims of MESO-BRAIN project is to develop unique biocompatible 3D platform with integrated electrodes that can be fabricated on a large scale and in reproducible manner. The development of such technological platform will be foundational for a new era of biological and medical research based on human neural networks. First prototype 3D scaffold platform concepts designed by Aston University have been already fabricated and tested in the frame of the MESO-BRAIN project.
