Plenary 2 Satellite Session – Organoids for Regenerative Medicine
Thursday, May 30, 2019 03:45 PM - 05:00 PM
Room 220
Speakers:

Generating Human T cells in Artificial Thymic Organoids
Gay Crooks, MBBS, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

Learning objectives:
•      Learn how T cells develop from hematopoietic stem cells in a normal thymus
•      Understand the key differences between the monolayer and 3D artificial thymic organoid (ATO) models
•      Learn how tumor antigen-specific T cells can be generated in ATOs from hematopoietic and pluripotent stem cells

Pluripotent Stem Cell Models of Heart Development and Disease
David Elliott, PhD, Murdoch Children's Research Institute, Australia

Learning objectives:
• Human pluripotent stem derived cardiomyocytes are important tools to understand disease.
• Isogenic cell lines are essential to understand the genetic basis of disease.
• Pluripotent stem cell derived cardiomyocytes can be used to screen for new drugs.
