Join our live webinar with Dr. James Wells, as he discusses the advances made in the directed differentiation of primary stem cells to gastrointestinal (GI) tissues and their culture as three-dimensional (3D) organoid structures. Dr. Wells has spent over 20 years uncovering the processes by which gastrointestinal and endocrine organs form in the developing embryo and in vitro stem cell cultures to model and better understand human development and disease.

- The critical importance of understanding developmental biology to generate human PSC-derived organoids
- Identification of new mechanisms that control gastrointestinal (GI) organ development
- Use of developmental principles to generate 3D GI organ tissues from human PSCs
- Human PSC-derived GI organoids as models of human development and disease
Dr. James Wells, PhD, is a Professor of Pediatrics and an Endowed Professor at the Perinatal Institute of the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Dr. Wells is a pioneer in the directed differentiation of PSCs into organoid cultures to study human development and disease.
