Cerebral organoids and brain development: how do we define cell maturity?

Written by Sharon Salt (Editor), Lauren Pulling (Publisher)

Arnold Kriegstein is a developmental neurobiologist at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF; CA, USA). He is also a clinical neurologist and directs the stem cell program at UCSF, which is one of the largest stem cell programs in the USA. The program covers stem cells of all organ types and diseases; however, Kriegstein’s interest lies within the brain. He is particularly interested in neurodevelopmental disorders and brain development. In this interview, Kriegstein tells us about his work on cerebral organoids, including how we might define a cell’s maturity, and if we could ever reach a point where we...
