Directed Differentiation of iPS Cells into Systems to Model CF Lung Disease Workshop
OIRM in collaboration with the Hospital For Sick Children’s CFIT Program are pleased to offer a 4-day hands-on workshop looking at the ‘Directed Differentiation of iPS Cells into Systems to Model CF Lung Disease’. This comprehensive course will cover methods to maintain human iPS cells in culture and the directed differentiation of these cells to epithelial cells suitable as models for the study of Cystic Fibrosis (CF). We will discuss and demonstrate important aspects of the workflow, including characterization of patient-derived iPS cells and how they can be used as a model system for the study of CF lung disease.
The course is open to Canadian and International academic trainees with limited space available to industry participants. Both the CFIT Program and OIRM are providing a limited number of trainee travel/registration awards for successful applicants.
Application deadline: March 31, 2019.
