Reprogramming and iPSC culture considerations for translational research

Available to view on demand
An overview of practical considerations for generating iPSCs that can be effectively transitioned toward clinical trials.

In order for iPSCs to realize their full clinical potential, reprogramming strategies and subsequent iPSC culture conditions must comply with clinical guidelines. This webinar will discuss some of the key crossroads and challenges that researchers face when choosing a method for iPSC generation, as well as provide perspective to find a balance between safety, efficacy, definition, and clinical compatibility in both reprogramming technologies and iPSC culture systems.

What will you learn?

  • Challenges in reprogramming balancing safety and efficacy
  • Optimizing the iPSC culture system for clinical applications

Who may this interest?

  • Researchers working with pluripotent stem cells
  • Researchers new to reprogramming and iPSC culture
  • Labs working in the field of regenerative medicine
  • Stem cell core facilities
  • Cell therapy companies
