Srdjan Djurovic group

The group's current research aims are to perform molecular genetic analysis to increase knowledge about psychiatric genetics and genomics and to identify molecular networks underlying psychiatric disease, including the use of stem cell-based studies.

The group uses human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) to derive neuronal cells from patients and healthy controls. Validated iPSCs are differentiated to neural progenitor cells (neural conversion) and regionalized neuronal subtypes, as well as astrocytes/ glial populations and cortical spheroids. Psychopharmacological screening platform for psychiatric disorders using iPSC-derived neurons has recently been developed.
