In vitro model of traumatic brain injury

We are sorry, this position has been filled.

We would like to extend our in vitro model of TBI to severe injuries. To do so, the brain slice cultures must better adhere to the culture substrate. We would like to test whether patterning the substrate with a laser will improve adhesion and increase strain.
