Abstract
Date:  May 6, 2021
Time: 9:00am (PDT),  12:00pm (EDT)
 
The goal of this educational webinar is to introduce the audience to induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and the ways in which they are being used to advance basic and applied medical research. Dr. Nityanandam will talk about ways to generate and characterize iPSCs, and show examples of their successful application towards addressing biological questions. She will specifically focus on how her lab is trying to use iPSCs to recreate different regions of the human brain in a physiologically relevant three-dimensional format. And how they have applied these brain models to understand disease biology. Dr. Nityanandam will also delve into the challenges in the field and the quality control measures that seem necessary to improve reliability and reproducibility of data.
 
Learning Objectives
  • Explain interline variability and the ways by which it can it be addressed
  • Elucidate the assays that should be done to determine if an iPSC line is of good quality
  • Describe organoids and their use in studying neurological diseases
 
 
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
