Jason Stein, PhD
Associate Professor

Jason Stein, PhD (Associate Professor, Department of Genetics) was awarded a “Flash Grant” from the North Carolina Biotechnology Center for his project titled “HotPockets: Novel devices for non-destructive, long-term electrophysiological recording and stimulation of entire human brain organoids”.

Together, with Dr. Wubin Bai (Assistant Professor, Applied Physical Sciences), the project will develop new multi-electrode array devices that are able to record and stimulate electrophysiological activity from human cortical organoids. The Stein lab will differentiate induced pluripotent stem cells into cortical organoids for testing within the HotPocket devices that Dr. Bai’s lab will generate.
