We are MIBE Speaker Series: Prof. Andreas Bausch & Prof. Simon T. Schäfer

At each event, two Principal Investigators (PIs) of MIBE will provide exciting insights into their research. After the talks, which take around 60 minutes, there is plenty of time for networking.

Prof. Dr. Andreas Bausch: Self organization in organoid development
Prof. Dr. Simon T. Schäfer: (Re)Constructing the human brain: Advanced organoid systems to study human brain development and disease

Date and Time:  Wednesday, April 19th 2023, 4:15 pm – around 5:15 pm, afterwards networking
Place: MIBE lecture hall (room E.126), Boltzmannstraße 11, 85748 Garching and Zoom


About the Speakers

Prof. Dr. Andreas Bausch

Prof. Bausch conducts research in the area of cellular biophysics. His work targets a quantitative understanding of the mechanical properties of the cytoskeleton and the microscopic mechanisms of self-organization. He also researches the identification and physical characterization of new biomimetic materials.

Prof. Dr. Simon T. Schäfer

Prof. Schäfer's research focuses on the development of novel stem cell-based technologies that help to replicate the human brain at the tissue level. This approach allows to push the boundaries of personalized disease research and to identify new strategies for tissue repair in brain injury.
