Stem Cells in the News

We have captured this month's most interesting, innovative, and maybe some of the strangest examples of stem cells in the news from around the world.

Evaluating New 3-D Systems for Disease Modeling, Drug Validation, and Toxicology

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 16:31

Cell and tissue-based models are a necessary step in the workflow for toxicology testing, drug discovery*, and disease modeling. In recent years, the research and pharmaceutical industries have adopted more complex ex vivo and in vitro 3-D tissue models because of their better predictive power. The first part of this webinar discusses the history of cell- and tissue-based models systems for toxicology, drug validation, and disease modeling. Particular emphasis will be placed on culture methods and optimization of stem cell-based models and 3-D cell culture systems, including organoids. The second half of the webinar introduces MimEX Tissue Model Systems, a transformative culturing platform that builds upon the...

Turning Flow Cytometry Upside Down and Inside Out: Cellular Function Revealed

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 - 07:58

Flow cytometry is a powerful technique that allows researchers to examine multiple proteins on cell populations using fluorescently labeled antibodies. Multi-parameter, fluidic-based flow cytometry has been applied to multiple fields of study ranging from basic to clinical immunology, cancer biology, neuroscience, stem cell research, and drug discovery. In order to maximize the quality of results obtained using this technology, researchers should be familiar with the basics of flow cytometry when setting up an experiment. In this series of seminars, we will discuss the necessary tools to design, run, and analyze a multi-parameter flow cytometric experiment.

Webinar 2 - Turning Flow Cytometry Upside Down and Inside Out: Cellular Function Revealed

In this webinar, you will learn how to apply basic concepts of flow cytometry...
