Rethinking Developmental Biology With Cellular Reprogramming
In this webinar, Professor Marius Wernig from Stanford University and Dr. Mark Kotter, CEO and founder of bit.bio offer an expert discussion on the pioneering research of cell reprogramming. They will provide insights into the initial approaches that paved the way for the astounding discovery of direct conversion from one cell identity to another, and highlight how precision cell reprogramming is impacting research, drug discovery and cell therapy.
In this webinar you will learn about:
- The foundational research that led to the origin of cell reprogramming
- The discovery of key transcription factors that define neural cell identity and how neurons can be induced, mature and maintain their identity
- The current advancements in precision cell reprogramming that are being powered by the latest synthetic biology toolkits
