.
ABOUT
.

Our best organoid course just got even better: You can save the travel, accommodation and time costs with our digital version 🙂 You get the live experience PLUS exclusive on-demand access for 6 months after the live course, all online.

No uncertainty related to the coronavirus travel and events restrictions.

INTESTINAL ORGANOIDS

Adult intestinal stem cells can give rise to in vitro long-term self-renewing mini gut structures called “Intestinal Organoids”. These organoids resemble the epithelial structure of the intestine, where LGR5+ stem cells, located in crypts, represent a long term self-renewing population that gives rise to all cell types of the intestinal epithelium. Dr. Bon-Kyoung Koo, one of the pioneers of this technology, will also cover fast-developing cancer organoids technologies.

CEREBRAL ORGANOIDS

We have developed a cerebral organoids course to empower scientists with this revolutionary technology. Using human pluripotent stem cells to create in vitro cerebral organoids allows the study of neural developmental mechanisms in human as well as the roots of human neurological diseases. Cerebral organoids can indeed be used in experiments where current in vitro methods are too simple and they are more human applicable than rodent or other mammalian models.

The lectures of this organoids course will cover both intestinal and cerebral organoids. However, for the practical sessions, you must choose one system in your registration form.

Our Organoids Courses have received 98% positive feedback from participants over the past 5 years when asked the question: “Are you confident to apply the technology by yourself in your lab after this Organoids Course?”.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
.

1. Understand the history and applications of organoid systems

.

2. Learn how to establish intestinal or cerebral organoid cultures

.

3. Gain knowledge about the use of organoid systems in research and disease

.

In the lectures of this organoids course, you will learn from our expert instructors how to establish, culture and manipulate cerebral organoids. You will discover the state-of-the-art of organoid technology and learn all the theory you need to design your experiments. The lectures will cover both intestinal and cerebral organoids.

Get the protocol used by the experts to practical ahead of the course. During the digital course, the instructors will guide you through the technical difficulties of setting up organoids. There will be interactive sessions with the instructors and partners to discuss all your technical needs, video protocols and live demonstrations where possible.

Instructors will also share tips and tricks you can only learn from the most experienced users of this powerful system.

Get all the theory and practical knowledge now. A hands-on practical will be available next year in South Korea.

Our Q&A clinics are specially designed sessions where you will get the chance to address the challenges of your individual project with the experts. They will answer any questions you have about your individual project and help you to avoid the common pitfalls of organoid experiments.

Have access to the content covered in the live sessions. You will also receive exclusive additional content after the course through the OBRIZUM e-learning platform (6 months access).

The virtual classroom has the following features:
- Webcam for interaction with instructors and participants
- Breakout rooms. Arrange private meetings with the instructors
- Interactive whiteboard
- Public and private chat
