The State-of-the-Art 3D Tissue Culture & Organoids
OIST is a young, international graduate university that offers a 5-year PhD program entirely in English. We plan to double the number of faculty and research staff over the next 5 years. Part of this growth strategy includes exploring new areas of research that may enhance OIST’s scientific portfolio through workshops and symposia, such as this one. Organoid research is a dynamic, interdisciplinary area of research with great potential to impact many aspects of biomedical science. This symposium aims to bring together renowned experts in the field to cover and discuss the basics and development of three dimensional tissue culture technology, its widespread application and the promise it holds for future medicine. It serves as a platform for stimulating new research ideas based on organoids as well as to introduce the potential of this technology to researchers in cell biology and beyond.
- Organoids for modelling of tissue/organ development and tissue regeneration
- Organoids for disease modelling and study of pathogenesis
