Organoids: Intestinal & Lung

Organoids: Intestinal & Lung

11-12 April 2019 Cambridge, UK
ABOUT THE COURSE
.

Organoids are in vitro three-dimensional (3D) miniature organs grown in a dish. They can be derived from adult tissue specific stem cells, embryonic stems cells or induced pluripotent stem cells. During the process of organoid formation stem cells proliferate, differentiate and self organise into 3D structures comprised of distinct organ specific cells. These tissue specific organoids can then be used to investigate a range of complex questions from basic research in fundamental cellular biology all the way to clinical applications, drug development and personalised medicine. In recent years, a multitude of organoid systems, from brains to intestines, have been developed by scientists to understand basic biology, health and disease.

INTESTINAL ORGANOIDS:

Adult intestinal stem cells can give rise to in vitro long-term self-renewing mini gut structures termed “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.

LUNG ORGANOIDS:

Numerous types of adult lung cells, including epithelial progenitor cells and stromal cells can give rise to the establishment of an in vitro 3D lung culture system, termed ”lung organoids”.

1. In the practical sessions, participants will learn how to successfully establish mouse INTESTINAL or LUNG organoid cultures from primary mouse tissue samples.
2. 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 organoid experiments.
3. Our world leading instructors will share their own experience with applying the newly developed CRISPR technology to the also relatively recently developed Organoid field.
