Meetings and conferences
2nd Annual London Stem Cell Network Symposium 30th April, 2019 The Fancis Crick Institute, London
The 2nd Annual London Stem Cell Network symposium with Keynote Speaker David Scadden from Harvard Univeristy will be held on the 30th April 2019. The symposium will begin with the innagural London Stem Cell Network Flagship talk by one of our network leads, Saverio Tedesco from UCL. Invited speakers include Francesca Spagnoli, Luca Biasco, Paola Bonfanti and Molly Stevens. Further short talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. Limited posters will be selected for an extended poster viewing session, and the event will finish with an evening networking event, including prize giving, drinks and finger food.
The Molecular and Cellular Basis of Regeneration & Tissue Repair 15 - 19TH SEPTEMBER 2018 Valetta, Malta
Mouse Development, Stem Cells & Cancer June 6 - 28th 2018 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
This intensive lecture and laboratory course is designed for scientists interested in using mouse models to study mammalian development, stem cells and cancer. The lecture portion of the course, taught by leaders in the field, provides the conceptual basis for contemporary research in embryogenesis, organogenesis in development and disease, embryonic, adult and induced pluripotent stem cells and cancer biology.
The laboratory and workshop portions of the course provides hands-on introduction to engineering of mouse models, stem cell technologies and tissue analyses. Experimental techniques include genome editing by CRISPR/Cas9, pronuclear microinjection, isolation and culture/manipulation of pre- and post-implantation embryos, embryo transfer, embryo electroporation and roller bottle culture, chimera generation, generation and differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells as well as induced pluripotent stem cells and fibroblasts, vibratome and cryosectioning, in situ RNA hybridization, immunostaining, FACS sorting and analysis, vascular injections and casting, neural sterotaxic injections, skeletal preparation, organ explant culture and fluorescent imaging, including live time-lapse microscopy.
