European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
The India-EMBO Lecture course on “Modeling development and disease with human tissue organoids" will bring together researchers working on diverse systems using interdisciplinary approaches to develop organoids to address key questions of human development and disease. Speakers will introduce this frontier area of research, and associated technological and scientific advances, to student and postdoc trainees via lectures and training sessions. This will be the first meeting in this research area to be organized in India and will be of tremendous value in terms of capacity-building and training. Major themes will include neural (neocortex, hippocampus, hypothalamus, retina) and non-neural (kidney, pancreas, skeletal muscle) organoids with a focus on technological advances in bioengineering, imaging, and transcriptomic and epigenomic analyses, which have led to unparalleled new insights into organ function. A key topic of discussion will be the use of organoids to model disease conditions, such as cancer and neurological diseases, which has the potential to transform personalized medicine.
