Webinar: Advanced neurobiology modeling with stem cells
Advancement in neuroscience research is challenged by the availability of physiologically relevant in vitro models that accurately recapitulate the complexity of the neural tissue. Stem-cell-based neural models have gained significant interest for their potential in several biomedical applications from regenerative medicine to drug discovery and development.
In this webinar on advanced neurobiology modelling with stem cells, our speakers will present innovative ways of using induced pluripotent stem cells to effectively model neurodevelopment and neurodegenerative diseases, thereby overcoming the limitations seen with present neurobiological models. There will also be an opportunity to learn from industry experts about innovation in growth factor technology to improve reproducibility in neural stem cell research and other related applications.
- Understanding neurodegenerative diseases, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and spinal muscular atrophy
- Recognizing the limitation of current models for neurodevelopment and neurodegenerative diseases
- Exploring innovative disease modeling platforms utilizing induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs)
- A novel, scalable drug screening platform for neuromuscular diseases
- Unveiling breakthroughs in growth factor technology to enhance reproducibility in neural stem cell research
- Exploring future prospects and advancements in neural stem cell research
Speakers: Dr. Dammy Olayanju (Qkine), Dr. Ivo Lieberam (King's College London), Joshua Thomas (German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases)
