1st Stem Cells & Brain Organoids Training Course & Symposium
The 1st Stem Cells and Brain Organoids Training Course and Symposium is organised by N. Déglon, CRN, R. Du Pasquier, DNC, K. Q. Do, Center for Psychiatric Neurosciences and C. Bagni, DNF, UNIL-CHUV, Lausanne.
Thursday 4 April 2019 (8h15 - 17h45) - CHUV - Auditoire Jequier-Doge
The advent of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells provides access to virtually limitless cells of any type, through a simple skin biopsy or blood sample.
Upon neuronal differentiation and growth in 3D matrix, these cells form organoids, which enable the study of brain development and diseases in vitro starting from patients’ cells, thereby helping in bridging the gap between clinical and fundamental neuroscience.
For this first symposium, we have invited leaders in this field, who have considerably contributed to our understanding of human brain functions and dysfunctions through an outstanding research on stem cells.
This symposium will be preceded by the “Stem cells in Neuroscience” training course for the Lemanic Neuroscience Doctoral School.
No registration is required.
