Internal courses and training Workshop on Culturing Cerebral Organoids

22-05-2024 9:00 am - 1:00 pm Add to iCal
Campus Flemingsberg Room: Von Behring, Alfred Nobels Allé 8, floor 9.

Interested in organoids and 3D culturing? Welcome to a Workshop on Culturing Cerebral Organoids.

At the workshop we will provide knowledge and information about the developments in the area of organoids / 3D culture and support research groups that look forward to incorporate reliable and advanced in vitro organoid models in their ongoing and future research projects/studies.

Learn more about

  • Stem cells and development (mESC, hESC, hiPSC)
  • Organoids from pluripotent stem cells
  • Recreating organs from pluripotent stem cells (where are we now?)
  • Organoids in neurological disease modeling
  • Cells and materials in regenerative medicine

Session topics

Overview

Recent advances in cell culture technologies have led to the development of new threedimensional tissue models, known as organoids, which more accurately reflect key structural and functional properties of their in vivo counterparts. Mini-brains (cerebral organoids) are now being used to study brain disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, microcephaly and other brain disorders, as well as in drug discovery and regenerative medicine. The development of organoid cultures have a great expectation within the research community to get valuable information in development and disease.

Organizer

The workshop is organized by Karolinska Stem cell & Organoids Unit, at the Department of Laboratory Medicine.

Karolinska Stem Cell Organoid (KISCO) at KI is constantly working to develop more accurate and scalable organoid culture methods. KISCO has developed a 3D-organiod culture system which utilizes hydrogel encapsulation and use of spinning bioreactors as well as microgravity based rotary wall vessel bioreactor to mimic the natural microenvironment for the brain development.
