Hepatocytes Derived from Human iPSCs: 4 Day Training Workshop

July 26 @ 9:00 AM July 29 @ 5:00 PM


This four-day workshop is ideal for researchers interested in developing hepatocytes from iPSCs. Team taught by active researchers, participants will have the opportunity to gain a solid foundation in iPSC methods with emphasis on deriving iPSC and differentiating to hepatocytes. Functional assays will be discussed in lectures for assessing hepatocyte differentiation, drug metabolism, and toxicity testing.

Lecture Topics

  • Introduction to iPSc
  • Methods for inducing pluripotency
  • Biology of hepatocytes
  • Hepatocytes for drug metabolism
  • Conditions for differentiating hepatocytes
  • Models to study hepatocyte injury in vivo and in vitro
  • Hepatocyte cultures in toxicology
  • Hepatocyte culture models for studying infectious diseases

“Course was helpful for people who don’t have any experience with iPSCs. Very easy to understand and follow.”
