Your Role

Area : Autophagy in stem cell derived microglia and brain organoids

The Developmental and Cellular Biology Group (led by Prof. Jens Schwamborn) at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine utilizes human stem cells for modeling and experimental treatment of neurodegenerative disease.

Projects in the lab are at the interface of systems biology and bio-medical research. In particular we aim on developing novel, complex in vitro models that are specific for the human brain.

Our main disease model is Parkinson’s disease.
