Thermo Fisher Scientific Demonstrates Improved differentiation of Stem Cell-derived Neurons and Downstream Applications
Date:5/11/2017

Neurons derived from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) and primary rodent neurons both are excellent resources for disease modeling and drug screening. Human PSCs derived neural stem cells (NSCs) can be expanded in culture and further differentiated into mature neurons for various applications, however, these often contain mixed population of both differentiated neurons and undifferentiated NSCs.

Due to the continuing proliferation of undifferentiated NSCs, very high cell densities and cell aggregation are usually observed during the differentiation of hPSC-derived NSCs which increase over time, posing challenges for long-term maintenance and downstream analysis.

In this webinar, made possible by the team at Thermo Fisher Scientific, attendees will explore experimental data illustrating the improved functionality, morphology, and maturity of these neuronal cultures, when compared to conventional differentiation media systems.

The speaker for this event will be Dr. David Kuninger, associate director and group leader at Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Kuninger received a doctorate in biochemistry and genetics from the University of Texas Medical Branch, after earning Bachelor of Science in chemistry from the University of Oregon, Eugene. He currently leads research, development and commercialization of next generation culture systems for pluripotent stem cell culture, differentiation, neurobiology and non-hepatic primary cell biology at Thermo Fisher Scientific in the Cell Biology business based in Frederick MD.

LabRoots will host this event May 17, 2017, beginning at 10:30 a.m. PDT, 1:30 p.m. EDT. To learn more about this event or to register for free, click here. Registering will ensure you are also invited to the remaining webinars in this ongoing series throughout 2017.
