The program features speakers from Evercyte, Medical University of Innsbruck, Environmental Agency Austria, MIMETAS and Biopredic International.

Models/assays to be covered will include, e.g:

  • Normal, hTERT immortalized and iPSC-derived kidney cells
  • 2D and 3D kidney culture (high density transwell culture, spheroids, organ-on-a-chip)
  • Toxicity assessment by analysis of lactate production, resazurin assay with deep insight into read-out and interpretation of data

Full program and registration are available here.

This training is targeted to technical and scientific staff (from early stage to seniors new to the field).

Lab Participants requirement:
Basic knowledge in cell culture and kidney toxicology is recommended.
