W03: GMS: Cell, Organoid & Animal Models

Oct 9, 2014 10:00am ‐ Oct 9, 2014 11:45am

Standard: $49.99

Description

This workshop will focus on emerging research models for investigating the pathogenesis and treatment of cystic fibrosis. In addition to new animal models including the CF rat and ferret, cellular models to be presented range from cell lines expressing multiple CFTR mutations to primary culture methods expanding human airway tissue, generating organotypic structures and investigating male reproductive tract biology. Emphasis is placed on the advantages these research methods offer for investigating the multiple manifestations of CF disease.
