Rick Horwitz will be speaking at the 12th Annual Wisconsin Stem Cell Symposium: Engineering Cells and Tissues for Discovery and Therapy.

Overview: This Symposium is coordinated by the Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the BTC Institute. It brings together leading researchers investigating human biology and disease with engineered human cells, organoids and tissues. Speakers will review genetic and epigenomic engineering of human cells for modeling and therapeutic purposes (morning session) and then focus on patterning stem-cell derived multicellular constructs into defined architectures, organoids, and tissues for modeling and regenerative medicine applications (afternoon session).

Highlighted Issues:

  • Cell and tissue patterning with stem cell derivatives
  • Genome and epigenomic engineering, editing and integration of synthetic biology into human cells
  • In vivo and in vitro models of human disease for drug discovery and toxicology
  • Mammalian organoid development and engineering
  • Regenerative medicine using implanted human cells and tissues
