Abstract: Brain organoids represent a promising tool for modeling neurological diseases. In this presentation we show that rat brain organoids can be used as an ex vivo avatar co-culture system to decipher glioblastoma invasion parameters. Finally, we showed how this model can be used to assess therapeutic interventions directed toward neuronal-glioma synaptic communication.
