3D cell culture - meet the experts

Welcome to meet our experts in our new 3D cell culture webinar series. Here you can register to the live webinars and watch the recorded sessions later on. Stay up-to-date on our upcoming webinars.

 

Part 5. High content imaging in patient-derived models

Tuesday, 9th February 2021, 15:30 to 16:00 CET

REGISTER NOW!

Presenter: Brinton Seashore-Ludlow, SciLifeLab and Karolinska Institutet

  • 3D models in high content imaging
  • Primary models in high throughput screening
  • High dimensional data for drug repositioning

After the webinar there is a Q&A session (15 minutes)

About Presenter:

Brinton Seashore-Ludlow received her PhD from KTH. She then did a Postdoc in the lab of Stuart Schreiber at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. Her work there focused on elucidating predictors of drug response in a large-scale cell line profiling dataset. Brinton then moved to the Chemical Biology Consortium Sweden at SciLifeLab. Currently Brinton is an assistant professor in the team headed by Olli Kallioniemi at SciLifeLab. Her work focuses on high content imaging in primary cells.

About Presenter:

Susanna Narkilahti received Master degree in biochemistry from University of Oulu in 2000 and PhD in Neurobiology from University of Kuopio in 2005 and Adjunct Professor status in Stem cells and Tissue Engineering from University of Tampere in 2010. She initiated the NeuroGroup in 2006 and has thereafter been group leader. SN has extensive and internationally acknowledged knowhow in neurologic field including epilepsy research and pluripotent stem cell applications. She has participated several national and international projects and currently is leader of Academy of Finland Modular platform for epilepsy modeling in vitro (MEMO) consortium project and PI in Academy of Finland, Centre of Excellence in Body-On-Chip Research. In Faculty of Medicine and Health Technology, she is a leader of two core facilities; BMT Imaging Core and BMT Electrophysiology Core. The research of SN has focused on human pluripotent stem cells and in vitro modeling and her main interest/activities are: production and characterization of human pluripotent stem cell derived neural cells, controlled/guided 2D and 3D cultures, disease modeling, in vitro modeling, functionality of neuronal networks in vitro, and data analysis.
