    Biography
      Dr. Anjana Nityanandam is a developmental neurobiologist with expertise in human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). She completed her PhD in developmental neuroscience with Prof. Victor Tarabykin at The Max Planck institute for Experimental Medicine in Goettingen, Germany. She then moved to the Baldwin Lab at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA, for postdoctoral research. Here Dr. Nityanandam trained in reprogramming, handling and differentiating human iPSCs. Her experience in neurodevelopment and training in the rapidly progressing field of iPSC technology led her to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, five years ago. She was hired to build and establish a stem cell-based disease modeling lab with an emphasis on research and innovation and with the goal of supporting PI's interested in creating and studying disease models using human iPSCs.

    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.
     
    LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this webinar, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit once you have viewed the webinar in its entirety.
