(Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-04-11)
      Summary Emerging evidence suggests that Parkinson's disease (PD), besides being an age-associated disorder, might also have a neurodevelopment component. Disruption of mitochondrial homeostasis has been highlighted as a ...

      Tiraboschi, Ettore; Martina, Silvia; van der Ent, Wietske; Grzyb, Kamil; Gawel, Kinga; Cordero-Maldonado, Maria Lorena; Poovathingal, Suresh K.; Heintz, Sarah; Satheesh, Somisetty Venkata; Brattespe, Jarle; Xu, Ju; Suster, Maximiliano; Skupin, Alexander; Esguerra, Camila V. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Abstract Objective: To pinpoint the earliest cellular defects underlying seizure onset (epileptogenic period) during perinatal brain development in a new zebrafish model of Dravet syndrome (DS) and to investigate potential ...
    • Patient-derived organoids and orthotopic xenografts of primary and recurrent gliomas represent relevant patient avatars for precision oncology

      Patient-based cancer models are essential tools for studying tumor biology and for the assessment of drug responses in a translational context. We report the establishment a large cohort of unique organoids and patient-derived ...
    • Stem cell-associated heterogeneity in Glioblastoma results from intrinsic tumor plasticity shaped by the microenvironment 

      Dirkse, Anna; Golebiewska, Anna; Buder, Thomas; Nazarov, Petr V.; Muller, Arnaud; Poovathingal, Suresh K.; Brons, Nicolaas H. C.; Leite, Sonia; Sauvageot, Nicolas; Sarkisjan, Dzjemma; Seyfrid, Mathieu; Fritah, Sabrina; Stieber, Daniel; Michelucci, Alesandro; Hertel, Frank; Herold-Mende, Christel; Azuaje, Francisco; Skupin, Alexander; Bjerkvig, Rolf; Deutsch, Andreas; Voss-Böhme, Anja; Niclou, Simone Pierrette (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-04-16)
      The identity and unique capacity of cancer stem cells (CSC) to drive tumor growth and resistance have been challenged in brain tumors. Here we report that cells expressing CSC-associated cell membrane markers in Glioblastoma ...
