Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) for research in regenerative medicine: hands-on course

PRE-REGISTRATION FORM


Description

hiPSC provide enormous potential for the field of regenerative medicine. Their ability to become any type of cell offers the possibility to use them as a disease model to study pathogenic disease mechanisms, as a platform to test effective treatments, or as a source of cells for cell-based therapies.

As part of this 3-day long training we will introduce, demonstrate and provide theoretical concepts of hiPSC culture and their application to clinical and biological research. Each participant will get hands-on training in multiple experiments. This course will advance and applied knowledge on hiPSC technology in regenerative medicine. It will cover:

  • Culture and manipulation of hiPSC
  • Cryopreservation and thawing
  • Characterization and differentiation
  • CRISPR strategies
