Live Webinar: Adding Organoids to Your Hepatic Research
Hepatic organoids are expanding the possibilities for innovation in liver research; what could they do for your research program? Growing hepatic progenitor cells as organoids yields a genetically normal, bipotent liver cell population which can be maintained through passaging or cryopreservation. The convenient availability of hepatic progenitor organoids to provide genetically normal cells of the liver epithelium could potentially augment or replace the use of animal models and immortalized cell lines in hepatic research.
Join our in-house hepatic organoid expert, Dr. Charis Segeritz-Walko, as she reviews the biological characteristics and practical research applications of mouse liver organoids. In this live webinar, Dr. Segeritz-Walko will also highlight common technical challenges and provide guidance for incorporating hepatic organoids into your research.
