Bio-Techne is proud to be partnering with the London Stem Cell Network (LSCN) to present our first Stem Cell and Organoid Virtual Workshop. Please join us for this exciting event to learn more from leading experts on the advances in stem cells and organoids to help further your projects.
The workshop will include several different streams:
• An academic or research focus that incudes a live lab demo from our scientists in HQ
• A translational stream focusing on overcoming the clinical challenges of stem cell therapy
• A spotlight on industry, specifically looking at how screening therapeutics with organoid models may pave the way forward for therapies
We will be finishing the event with an interactive Q&A session, providing you the chance to pose questions to the panel of experts from academia, industry, and the clinic.
Between sessions, we shall be hosting a virtual British-style pub quiz for all participants – attendees will have the chance of being crowned the winner in the prize draw finale!
We look forward to welcoming you!
The London Stem Cell Network is an international platform for research groups working across universities and institutes. The LSCN aims to provide a networking platform for the research community through events including workshops on specific stem cell-related areas and annual symposia. The ultimate goal of the LSCN is to highlight the wide breadth of stem cell research performed and facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration.
