Human-derived organoids—3D mini-organs cultured in vitro—have far reaching applications in tissue regeneration, disease modeling, precision medicine, and drug discovery. Researchers utilize a wide variety of techniques and technologies to develop, maintain, and assay different organoids, the robustness and reproducibility of which form the backbone of safe and effective pre-clinical and clinical applications.

In this Technique Talk, Dosh Whye will discuss how researchers use pluripotent stem cells to build 3D models of neural development.

Learning Objectives

  • Embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells
  • Culture systems for pluripotent stem cells 
  • 2D and 3D methods for neural derivation and neuronal differentiation
  • Methods for characterizing neural identity 
  • Functional assays to study disease-related phenotypes
