Machine learning-assisted neurotoxicity prediction in human midbrain organoids

We use human midbrain organoids to investigate if toxins can induce Parkinson`s disease like phenotypes. Additionally, this can be used as a platform technology to test if small molecules can ameliorate the negative effects of these toxins.

A recent publication from the University of Luxembourg shows how the midbrain organoid system can be used to predict neurotoxicity and how state of the art machine learning approaches can be used to analyse these data.
