Discovering Organoids: Intestine and Cardiovascular

Discovering Organoids: Intestine and Cardiovascular

26-28 June 2019 Vienna, Austria
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 stem 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.

.

ORGANOID SYMPOSIUM (Wednesday 26th June):

Experts and early career researchers in the field of organoid technology will present the latest breakthroughs in their research. Speakers to be announced in due course.

TWO DAY ORGANOID COURSE (Thursday 27th – Friday 28th June)

.

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.

.

CARDIOVASCULAR ORGANOIDS:

The most common human birth defects comprise aberrations during the interaction and co-specification of mesodermal precursors as cardiogenesis unfolds, resulting in congenital heart disease. Moreover, some of the most widespread disorders in adults are obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular complications. Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) can be derived into multiple cardiac cell types to provide insights into the mechanisms underlying organogenesis and advance the development of new treatment strategies for these disorders.

1. In the practical sessions, participants will learn how to successfully establish mouse INTESTINAL or CARDIOVASCULAR 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.
