Using iPS-derived cells to generate a functional human liver through 3D bioprinting

Speaker

Abstract

Date:  March 24, 2021

Time: 08:00am PDT

 

The liver is responsible for many metabolic, endocrine and exocrine functions. Approximately 2 million deaths per year are associated with liver failure. Modern 3D bioprinting technologies allied with autologous induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS)-derived grafts could represent a relevant tissue engineering approach to treat end stage liver disease patients. In this presentation, we will show how to differentiate human iPS towards relevant liver cellular phenotypes (hepatocytes, endothelial cells and mesenchymal cells) for 3D bioprinting. Also, we will evaluate the impacts of using single cell dispersion (i.e. obtained from conventional bidimensional differentiation) of iPS-derived parenchymal (i.e. hepatocyte-like cells) versus using iPS-derived hepatocyte-like cells spheroids (i.e. three-dimensional cell culture), both in combination with non-parenchymal cells, into final liver tissue functionality. These results will contribute to improve current liver bioprinting technology towards future regenerative medicine applications and liver physiology and disease modeling.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss iPS cell culture and quality control
  • Describe differentiation and functional analysis of relevant liver cells phenotype (ie. hepatocytes, endothelial and MSC)
  • Discuss 3D bioprinting human iPS-derived liver grafts in combination of 3D cultured hepatocyte-like cells
