Webinars

Efficiently Build Relevant In Vitro Models Using Human Stem Cell-derived Tissue Cells, High Performance Transfection and Novel Multiplexed Reporter Techniques (Originally aired Dec 9). Find out how to use highly pure human tissue cells and transfection techniques to build cell models that recapitulate disease phenotypes and enable quantitative analysis of biological pathways. Presenters: Dr. Matthew Robers, Promega; Dr. Brian Jarecki, Cellular Dynamics

Recording>>

“First in Human” – The Potential of Neural Stem Cell-based Approaches for Treatment of Brain Disorders (Originally aired Dec 16 | Hosted by Cell Press). Hear how pluripotent stem cell technologies can model “human” neural disease pathology and serve as drug development platforms. Presenters: Dr. Ricardo Dolmetsch, Stanford University; Dr. Kevin Eggan, Harvard University; Dr. Fred H. Gage, Salk Institute
