Ohio State University scientists claim they’ve developed a nearly-complete human brain. In Buckeye land, that’s a first.
Biological chemistry and pharmacology professor Rene Anand has joined fellow Nuts Jeffrey Dahmer and Maurice Clarett as authorities on how drugs affect the brain. He claims his lab-grown organoid contains 99 percent of the genes found in human fetal brains.
“The power of this model bodes well for human health,” said Anand, “because it gives us better and more-relevant options to test and develop therapeutics other than rodents.”
