News and Blog

AxoSim, Inc., the premier provider of neuroscience discovery platforms that mimic the structure and function of the human nervous system, today announced an exclusive license from Johns Hopkins University to intellectual property underlying the “Mini-Brain” technology, which uses induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to create functional models of the human brain. Mini-Brain technology enables scientists to study key brain functions, test new therapies and screen for toxic substances in human rather than animal models at an early stage of research.
