New Aspects in Cell-based Therapies

when 4 July 2022 - 8 July 2022
language English
duration 1 week
credits 2 EC
fee EUR 250

This year’s summer school will focus on primary cells as source for (tissue) regeneration and therapeutic applications and test systems in human and veterinary medicine:

1. improved methods for isolation, propagation and maturation of primary cells for human and animal regenerative application (cartilage, amnion, umbilical cord).
2. the application of autologous and allogenic stem cells in human immunotherapies
3. standardization of human cells as in vitro test systems and extracellular vesicles for clinical applications

The program will include class lectures and hands on courses in the lab targeting different raw materials. Furthermore, we will highlight the importance of entrepreneurial thinking, which is needed to transfer an academic result to a medical application for the benefit of patients. There will also be plenty of time for fruitful discussions with the lecturers and participants and several social events for networking.
