Martin Thunemann and Ella Zeldich Winners of GSI 2024 Pilot Grant Competition

Through the 2024 Pilot Grant Competition, the Genome Science Institute supports nine one-year pilot projects; each to enhance genetics and genomics research at Boston University/Boston Medical Center, with the use of kits, reagents, and other services with new genomic technologies.

Professors Martin Thunemann and Ella Zeldich were among the winners for their project: 8. “Elucidating changes in neuronal activity and transcriptional profiles in Down Syndrome (DS)-derived human cortical organoids transplanted into mouse cortex”

This work coincides with the ongoing research projects surrounding organoids across BU’s two campuses, linking the Medical and Charles River campuses. To read more on the organoid research happening at BU, read the article here.
