Poster – Development and automation of 3D innovative hiPSC-based liver organoids including the microenvironment for phenotypic screening – Application on metabolic diseases

Ask for high quality link by putting your email below We previously showed that human pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) provide a suitable model to study metabolic diseases upon hepatocyte-like cell (HLC) differentiation. In particular, HLCs have been used to model cholesterol metabolism regulation, by mimicking the main disease features in Read more…

The ExtraCellular Matrix: a focus on GlycosAminoGlycans and Hyaluronan

The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a three-dimensional macromolecular network composed of structural proteins (collagens, elastin), adhesion/signalling proteins (fibronectin, laminins), different proteoglycans, glycoproteins and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). GAGs are structurally complex, but their structure is simply made up of repeating disaccharide building blocks composed of alternating uronic acid and hexosamine units. GAGs Read more…

Feedback from SCMC congress: Maturation and Development of Cerebrovascular System

The annual SCMC congress (Société Cerveau et Maladies Cérébrovasculaires – Brain and Cerebrovascular diseases Society) took place in Lille last week, in the Faculty of Medecine. The congress was organized in three sessions. The first session was about cerebrovascular development and maturation. The conferences began with a lecture about blood-brain Read more…
