We are interested in the development of the brain in health and disease, in particular brain regions involved in social and cognitive processes. Specifically neural and cancer stem cell characteristics and differentiation with implications for neurodevelopmental disorders, innate repair after damage, and susceptibility to disease. We use cutting edge molecular technologies in combination with imaging, biomaterials, bioelectronics, and bioprinting, and collaborate extensively with physicians.

Research news and activities
Neuroscientist with an interest in technology
Neuroscientist Ola Hermanson aims to both understand the development of the healthy brain and lay the groundwork for improved treatments for serious diseases. He is also keen to drive technological developments in bioprinting, amongst other areas.
Neurochallenges in education and research
The fourth work package (WP4) in NeurotechEU is coordinated by University of Bonn and focuses on education and research. The KI representative in the work package is Ola Hermanson.
