We are an open science platform that promotes the sharing of scientific research to accelerate the discovery of new treatments for neurological disorders benefiting patients worldwide. At the EDDU we apply the technology of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to study brain disorders directly in patients cells. Our work contributes to the acceleration of drug discovery by providing training to other scientists, through collaborations with academic and industry partners, and through sharing data and materials.
