The Scientist brings together a panel of experts to discuss challenges and strategies for optimizing your pluripotent stem cell culture.

Pluripotent stem cells, both induced pluripotent stem cells and embryonic stem cells, represent an attractive, physiologically relevant cellular system for disease modeling, drug discovery, and cell-based therapy. However, technical challenges persist in the standardization of culture growth conditions and differentiation protocols. The Scientist brings together a panel of experts to discuss challenges and strategies for optimizing your pluripotent stem cell culture. Attendees can interact with the experts during the live webinar by asking questions and sharing their experiences using stem cells.

Topics to be covered:

  • Techniques for optimizing cell-culture conditions
  • Considerations for controlling media systems moving towards clinical applications
