Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells: differentiation to hepatocytes

Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells: differentiation to hepatocytes

3-4 June 2019 Cambridge, UK
ABOUT THE COURSE
.

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) provide an inexhaustible source of cells, which can be differentiated into any lineage. iPSCs are generated from normal and disease adult cells (such as blood cells or skin cells) and reprogrammed by a defined set of transcription factors (Oct4, Sox2, c-Myc, Kif4). Hepatocytes are liver cells, which make up 70-85 % of the liver mass. These cells are involved in processes such as protein synthesis, carbohydrate metabolism and detoxification. which are associated with many diseases. iPSC derived hepatocytes can be used for basic liver research such as understanding liver development and cell biology to disease modeling and toxicity screening.

1. Participants will be introduced to the background, maintenance and applications of iPSC technology.
2. During the hands-on practical, participants will learn how to derive hepatocytes from human iPSCs.
3. 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 using iPSCs in your experiments.
