You've cultured an organoid and spheroid... now what?

  • Associate Director, CuSTOM, Professor and Assistant Professor, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Tokyo Medical and Dental University Yokohama City University, Principal Investigator, Takeda-CiRA
      Dr. Takebe is an Associate Director of Center for Stem Cell and Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM) at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and Professor at Yokohama City University, and Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Japan. He serves as Board of Directors at International Society of Stem Cell Research (ISSCR). His lab investigates the mechanisms of human organogenesis, and develops mini-organ technologies from human stem cells - namely organ bud based approaches. He is applying iPSC-liver buds into drug discovery study as well as transplant application - for patients with a rare congenital metabolic disorder, ultimately expanding the clinical indications to diseases like liver cirrhosis.

    As we develop new methods to create more biologically relevant models for research in understanding disease etiology and innovating new treatment options, one of the most requested areas for educational materials is 3D cell models such as organoid and spheroid systems.
    Thermo Fisher Scientific is proud to present our webinar series on 3D culture & analysis, and more importantly, how you can get started, how to monitor and analyze 3D models and what to do with these once you have successfully cultured your organoid or spheroid model of interest.
    In this series we will specifically cover the following areas and after taking part in the presentations, hopefully you will be better equipped to answer the basic questions and feel enabled to get started using 3D culture systems.
      • Topics
        • What question are you looking to answer
        • Do you even need 3d? 2d vs 3d (Pro vs cons)
        • How do you choose the right system?
          • Selecting the right methods
          • Are you getting the right cell types at the end?
    • March 20: Getting started in 3D  - Mark Kennedy
      • Part 1: Getting started in 3D: Setting up your lab and reviewing common pitfalls of 3D research
      • Part 2: Monitoring your 3D culture (what's good and bad): How to detect problems and what a successful growth looks like
    • April 17: You’ve cultured an organoid and spheroid…now what? - Takanori Takebe
      • Topics:
        • Overview of how organoid/spheroids are used to answer difficult questions or applications that they are used in
        • A preview of where the field is heading


    • June 19:  Getting started in 3D: Ask an Expert
      • Meet with the 3D experts at Thermo Fisher Scientific and submit your questions in a live round table discussion.
        • David Kuninger
        • Mark Kennedy
        • Richard Josephson
    Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
