Luxembourg government supports OrganoTherapeutics project “Drug Repurposing to combat SARS-CoV-2 brain infection”

OrganoTherapeutics uses in vitro-manufactured mini-brains for study. OrganoTherapeutics (OT) was founded by Jens Schwamborn and Javier Jarazo in Luxembourg and focuses on the development of drugs for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. For this purpose, OrganoTherapeutics models brain organoids in vitro, so-called “mini-brains”. With mounting evidence that SARS-CoV2 is not limited to the respiratory system but also has a negative neurological impact, OrganoTherpeutics concluded that brain organoid models may be a suitable tool for the development of new small molecule drugs. These agents should specifically target the neurological aspects of…

Jens Schwamborn Interview: Developing drugs for Parkinson’s with mini-brains

Jens Schwamborn & Javier Jarazo are producing 3D brain organoids to develop new drugs for Parkinson’s disease. Jens Schwamborn and his partner Javier Jarazo founded Organo Therapeutics, an offshoot of the University of Luxembourg / Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB). The two scientists are developing 3-D mini-brains specifically for the midbrain from stem cells of people with Parkinson’s disease. The mini-brains used are intended to help in the development and research of new drugs for Parkinson’s. We wanted to know more and asked Jens Schwamborn: – What exactly is…
