Lectures and seminars ”Stem-cell-a-thon” seminar #4

04-05-2023 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Add to iCal

Speaker: Cedric Ghevaert, University of Cambridge
Title: Making platelets in vitro: challenges and opportunities

Cedric Ghevaert's specialization: The main focus of his group’s research is the production of blood cells for human use, namely red cells and platelets. They have developed a particular expertise in the production of these cell types from human pluripotent stem cells using methodologies that are compatible with the production of clinical grade products within the constraints of affordable manufacturing processes. To this end they are combining cellular programming through knowledge and manipulation of transcription factor networks and the creation of 3D biocompatible niches and bioreactors.

Discussion with Cédric Ghevaert, will be possible online right after his talk, please contact Sophia Borate (Sophia.Borate@ki.se) for more information.
