Next Generation Human Disease Models in Neuroscience
Friday, September 27, 2019
11 a.m.–5 p.m. EDT
- Lorenz Studer, MD, Sloan Kettering Institute
- Marius Werning, MD, PhD, Stanford University
The ability to create pluripotent stem cells from human cells has radically changed the landscape of studying the mechanisms of human diseases. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), organoid technology, and cellular reprogramming methods are providing new insight into how the brain develops, matures, and ages, and how these patterns are altered by neurological disorders. By using human cells rather than animal models, these techniques allow researchers to better capture the genetic diversity of the human population. This virtual conference will explore how leaders in the field are using cellular reprogramming methods to understand the genetic, molecular, and cellular underpinnings of neurological disorders, as well as to screen for potential treatments.
This virtual conference serves as a complement to SfN’s Training Series: Stem Cells and Reprogramming Methods for Neuroscience. While it is recommended you view some resources before attending the virtual conference, you can participate without doing so.REGISTER
