Discovering Gastruloids

Discovering Gastruloids

24-25 October 2019 Cambridge, UK
ABSTRACT
.

Gastruloids are three-dimensional aggregates of embryonic stem cells. Gastruloids can generate polarised gene expression, establish spatially organised germ layers and undergo morphological elongation. In both their spatial and temporal progression, they mimic features of early embryonic patterning. Therefore, gastruloids can be used to study early developmental processes such as gastrulation and axial extension that are otherwise difficult to access in vivo. Gastruloids offer a minimalistic system that works under defined conditions. The system complements other in vitro methods as a bottom-up approach for studying development.

ON THIS GASTRULOID TRAINING COURSE
.
.

The instructors will discuss the background and principles of gastruloid systems, including a detailed explanation of the protocol, troubleshooting steps and tips to ensure maximal reproducibility.

.
1. Participants will be introduced to the background, maintenance and applications of gastruloid culture 2. During the hands-on practical sessions, participants will learn how to set up gastruloids, deliver specific treatments and assess their effects on morphology and gene expression experiments. 3.Participants will gain first-hand experience with gastruloids at all major stages of routine gastruloid culture 4. Participants will take part in interactive tutorials, Q&A clinics, and panel discussions, with leading scientists who will answer any questions you have about your individual projects and help you to avoid the common pitfalls of when running gastruloid cultures in the lab
LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
.

1. To understand the principles of early embryonic development

.

2. To learn how to set up and maintain gastruloids from embryonic stem cells

.

3. To learn about ways to analyse image data generated from gastruloids by qualitative and quantitative methods

.

4. To gain knowledge about the use of gastruloids in research and their potential applications in drug development and treating disease
