On Thursday, the 20th of April 2023, Josse Depla will be defending his thesis “Neural organoids as
preclinical tools for viral infection and gene therapy: Insights from enterovirus D68 and adeno
associated virus studies”.
Josse’s PhD project is a collaboration between the OrganoVIR Labs and UniQure Biopharma. His project focuses on setting up brain organoid models to study how Enterovirus D68 infection causes neurological conditions and to study adeno-associated virus transduction of the CNS in order to improve the delivery of gene therapy for genetic brain disorders.
Josse’s PhD defense will take place at 16:00 at the University of Amsterdam in the Agnietenkapel,
Oudezijds Voorburgwal 229-231, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
