PODCAST: Dr Damián Hernández talks stem cell research and ‘mini-brains’

In a short podcast interview, Dr Damian Hernandez, Research Fellow at CERA talks about his experience and what led him to work and study at the Centre.

Damian explains the progress in stem cell modelling for diseases such as Alzheimer’s and the fascinating research he is doing, as part of a team led by Associate Professor Alice Pébay, creating ‘mini brains’ from skin cells.

“CERA is a good place to research not just the eye, but to use the technology, training and capacity we have to work with stem cells,” said Dr Hernandez.
