Cerebral Organoids: Establishment, Culture and Manipulation 

22-23 October 2018, Cambridge UK

We have developed a new 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.

Applications include but are not limited to: tissue morphogenesis, migration assays, clonal lineage tracing, transplantation, drug high-throughput screening, cell replacement therapy, or cell-type specific genome assays. Promising future applications of cerebral organoids include direct implantation into a host, where the organoid fuses with host tissue in areas of neurodegeneration, being incorporated with the host vasculature.

In the lectures, practicals and clinics of this course you will learn from Madeline Lancaster and her lab how to establish, culture and manipulate cerebral organoids. In the lectures led by Madeline Lancaster, you will be introduced to state-of-the-art of cerebral organoid technology  and learn all the theory you need to design your experiments.

You can watch a passed course video below or more here.

During the practicals of our cerebral organoids course, instructors from the Lancaster lab will cover all the critical steps of the establishment and culture of cerebral organoids as well as tips and tricks you can only learn from the most experienced users of this powerful system. Our clinics are specially designed sessions where each participant gets a chance to address the challenges of their individual project and learn directly from the experts how to best design, run, and trouble shoot their experiments.

In addition to the teaching there will be abundant networking and interactive time for you to get the most out of this 2-day intensive course. You can get watch videos about passed courses here.
