Part 1: Modeling Development and Disease I
7 October, 2020
18:00 - 19:30 EDT (view your time zone)

In the opening program of this series, Applying Organoids: The 3D Frontier, speakers from around the globe will discuss their latest research using adult and pluripotent stem cell-derived organoids to recapitulate and understand human developmental processes, the development of individual endodermal derivatives as well as their organization into complex functional units, and model complex human neuropsychiatric disease.

Speakers:
Ryuichi Nishinakamura, MD, PhDKumamoto University, Japan
Silvia Velasco, PhDThe Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, USA
Aryeh Warmflash, PhD, Rice University, USA
Jason Spence, PhDUniversity of Michigan, USA

Registration for Part 1 is now closed.

Part 2: Modeling Development and Disease II
14 October, 2020
06:00 - 07:30 EDT (view your time zone)

In the second program of the series, Applying Organoids: The 3D Frontier, the presentations will explore the use of organoids in development and disease. This includes how organoids are used to tease out fundamental insights into tissue generation in early human development and the regeneration of adult tissues later in life. Research will also highlight the application of organoids for drug screening approaches.

Speakers:
James Hudson, PhD, QIMR Berghofer, Australia
Joo-Hyeon Lee, PhD, Wellcome Trust and MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute, UK
Miki Ebisuya, PhD, EMBL Barcelona, Spain
Meritxell Huch, PhD, Max Planck Dresden, Germany

Registration for Part 2 is now closed.

Part 3: Organoids in Translation I
21 October, 2020
06:00 - 07:30 EDT (view your time zone)

The third program in the series, Applying Organoids: The 3D Frontier, will move from development and disease to the translational application of stem cells. This session will highlight the intersection of bioengineering and stem cell biology in the gut and intestine. Presentations will include using organoids to understand human gut development and their use in modeling complex organization of tissues.

Speakers:
Vivian Li, PhD
The Francis Crick Institute, UK
Matthias P. Lutolf, PhDEcole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland
Prisca Liberali, PhD, FMI, Switzerland
Kim Jensen, PhDBRIC - Biotech Research & Innovation Centre, Denmark

Registration for Part 3 is now closed.

Part 4: Organoids in Translation II
27 October, 2020
20:00 - 21:30 EDT (view your time zone)

The final program in the series, Applying Organoids: The 3D Frontier, will feature research on organoids from the skin, gut, and lung in addition to the generation of complex organoid systems. These presentations will address therapeutic applications for drug development, cancer, infection, and skin diseases.

Speakers:
Calvin Kuo, MD, PhD, Stanford University, USA
Takanori Takebe, MD
Children's Hospital Cincinnati, USA and Tokyo Medical and Dental University and Yokohama City University, Japan 
Karl Koehler, PhDBoston Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, USA
Suet Yi Leung, MDThe University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong
