Biomedicine: Cell & molecular Biology, 3D Bioprinting and NGS applications
Time & Location
About the Event
This year program will be separated into three sections (3 days):
1. (22.09.2020) 3D cell culture, Bioprinting, Organoids
Studies in cell biology over the last decade have shown that adherent cells aggregated in three dimensions can provide more physiologically relevant cellular responses compared to cells cultured on flat plastic or glassware. Moreover, we are going to talk about the importance of 3D disease modeling and using 3D Bioprinters for skin applications, and what kind of reagents are recommended. At the end of the section, we will focus on Augmented Microscopy TM for full automation of imaging workflows correlated with 3D biology experiments.
2. (23.09.2020) NGS Applications -WGS, WES
In this section, we will present the current challenges and solutions in the field of neurodegenerative diseases, rare diseases, and pathology applications where next-generation sequencing (NGS) is emerging as a valuable method for obtaining a deeper and more accurate look into the molecular underpinnings.
3. (24.09.2020) From immunology, neurobiology, sample preparation to cell & molecular biology mechanisms
The cell separation method you choose typically depends on what you intend to use the isolated cells for, and the choice may involve a trade-off. For example, if you need very pure cells, you will likely choose a method with high purity but that may result in lower yield. In this section, we will share first-hand information about cell separation methods and characterization with quantitive methods.
