Discovering Organoids: Intestine and Cerebral
 

CamBioScience brings you another virtual 7 live organoid course in September 2021. You can save the travel, accommodation and time costs with our digital version  Therefore, you get the live experience PLUS exclusive on-demand access for 6 months after the live course. 
Meaning, no uncertainty related to the coronavirus travel and event 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

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 discussions, you must choose one system in your registration form.


CamBioScience 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?”.
