    International course: Induced pluripotent stem cell-based models for human diseases

    Induced pluripotent stem cell-based models for human diseases, 22-23 October 2019, Kuopio

     Place: Medistudia building, University of Eastern Finland, Yliopistonranta 1 A, 70210 Kuopio

    • October 22: Auditorium MS300
    • October 23: Auditorium MS302

    Credit points: 1-2 (1 ECTS for attendance at lectures both days, 2 ECTS for attendance at lectures both days and a written report, that is a short summary of 1-2 lectures written after the course).
    Organizing unit: A.I. Virtanen Institute for Molecular Sciences

    Course directors: Sarka Lehtonen, Riikka Martikainen, Pasi Tavi

    Course description:

    Human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) present unprecedented opportunities to model human disease. Although animal models are essential in medical research, they do not fully recapitulate early human development, tissue formation or human diseases, and thus do not completely elucidate human tissue functions in healthy and disease conditions. New generation techniques, including stem cell technology, enable studies that can better simulate the situation in human body. The course will cover the bases as well as some latest findings in using iPS cells in human disease modeling and for drug screening. Speakers from academia, industry, health services and regulatory bodies will discuss their work with iPSCs. Meet the speaker event will provide the students ample opportunity for informal interactions with the lecturers.

    Lectures are open to all students, postdocs and personnel in UEF and also to other academic & industry participants outside UEF.

    Certificate of attendance will be provided against a request to participants that are not UEF students.

    Maximum participant amount to the lectures is 60.


     Registration is free of charge for all the participants.

    Register here until 10.10.2019: https://elomake.uef.fi/lomakkeet/23639/

    Fall 2019 program: Prenatal programming of mental disorders

    Fall 2019: Big questions in neuroscience and current limits of knowledge  

    Are you interested in what are the key open research questions in different fields of neuroscience?
    What are the current conceptual and methodological limitations?
    What are the biggest hurdles for effective prevention and treatment of psychiatric and neurological diseases?

    Come and hear our top neuroscientists discuss these and other timely questions in the context of their research.

    The events are open to students, postdocs, group leaders, or anyone interested in neuroscience, and science in general.

    Host / organizer: Professor Iiris Hovatta
