Gene Editing with CRISPR: 3 Day Training Workshop

June 22, 2022 @ 9:00 AM June 24, 2022 @ 5:00 PM


This rigorous three-day program is ideal for basic research and translational biology scientists who are looking for a balanced theoretical vs. hands-on introduction to CRISPR toolkit.  Taught by active researchers, this workshop features several cutting-edge presentations delivered by experts in the CRISPR/Cas9 field along with an intensive schedule of laboratory exercises. This program will focus on CRISPR principles, strategies for successful project design, available expertise and resources, as well as a wealth of CRISPR technology diverse applications.

Lecture Topics

  • Introduction into Basic Principles of Genome Editing Technologies
  • Mechanisms of Double-Stranded DNA Break Repair
  • Structural Aspects of Target Recognition by CRISPR/Cas9/sgRNA Complexes
  • Biologic Diversity of Targeted Nucleases
  • Comparative Assessment of CRISPR and RNAi Technologies
  • Development of In Vitro/Cell Culture Models using CRISPR
  • Engineering Mouse Models via CRISPR Mutagenesis for Basic and Translational Research and as an Experimental Platform for Preclinical Drug Development
  • CRISPR/Cas9 Applications for Genome Editing in Pluripotent Stem Cells
  • CRISPR/Cas9 Libraries and Their Unparalleled Value in Functional Screening and Gene Discovery Studies
  • Emerging Clinical Applications of CRISPR/Cas9 Technology as a Promising Gene Therapy/Mutation Correction Strategy
  • Bioinformatics Resources and Reagent Sources to Facilitate Successful Design and Implementation of CRISPR Projects.
  • Ethical and Biological Safety Aspects of CRISPR/Cas9 Technology

“It was my first experience with professional development workshop in the USA. I liked it a lot. It was well organized, flexible and friendly. It helped to put in order my preceding knowledge and gain more.”
