PhD student, Pasteur Institute, Paris
I am really grateful for the opportunity of presenting my work at The Shaping Life 2 conference, where I got the chance to get in contact with the work of great experts in the developmental biology field. One of my favorite talks was given by Paola Arlotta (Harvard University) on human brain development, where she showed that brain organoids can recreate brain development with high reproducibility of the cell types generated. Even with the constraints of an online event, the organizing committee’s efforts to make it interactive were outstanding, offering a natural networking environment.
During my poster presentation, I was lucky to engage in fruitful discussions, that were even extended after the event.
