Getting started in 3D - Setting up your lab and reviewing common pitfalls of researchers new to 3D

Speaker
  • R&D Scientist at Thermo Fisher Scientific, Cell Biology ADME/Tox group
    Biography
      Mark received his Ph.D. from Memorial University (Canada). Under the guidance of Ken R. Kao, in the Terry Fox Cancer Research Laboratory, he investigated mechanisms by which growth factor signaling controls stem cell differentiation in embryonic development. As a Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory of Terry P. Yamaguchi at the National Cancer Institute, Dr. Kennedy studied the gene regulatory network controlled by Wnt signaling in models of mammalian embryogenesis. He has published many peer-reviewed research articles in leading journals such as PNAS and Development. At Thermo Fisher Scientific, Dr. Kennedy is part of a team that focuses on the development of new in vitro 3D cell culture models. His ongoing work focusses on the utilization of human embryonic stem cells, iPSCs and primary cells, and their application in spheroids, organoids and co-culture systems.

    Abstract
    DATE:   March 20, 2019
    TIME:    9:00am PDT, 12:00pm EDT
     
    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?
