Human Brain Organoids: the Science, the Ethics
Human brain organoids,miniature ‘brain structures’ can be generated fromstemcells. These have the capacity to produce new, complex and developing neuronal tissue and have the potential to provide neuroscientists with a different and maybe more useful model of parts of a functioning human brain than has ever before been possible.

Join us to find outmore about how human brain organoids are being used in research, now and in the future. Contribute to discussions on the scientific, ethical and legal challenges that scientists and society must confront.

The event is organised jointly by the Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities at Oxford University and the International Neuroethics Society, with support from the European Dana Alliance for the Brain.
