Thesis Research by CMDB Grad Will Cantley Highlighted
Will Cantley, an August 2018 CMDB graduate, worked with a team at TUSE in David Kaplan's lab to develop and characterize a 3D tissue model that promotes differentiation and survival of functional neural networks. This work has promise with respect to exploring complex neurological disorders under well-controlled conditions in the future.
