Medical College of Wisconsin

Born and raised in Curitiba, Brazil, Thiago Arzua now pursues his Ph.D. in neuroscience at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Before that, he completed his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, with a minor in French, at the University of South Florida. His doctoral research focuses on human stem cells derived neuronal models, such as cerebral organoids. This cutting-edge type of 3D brain tissue can model a variety of brain diseases, as well as brain development, morphology, and physiology.
