OVERVIEW: This Symposium is coordinated by the Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the BTC Institute. It brings together leading researchers investigating human biology and disease with engineered human cells, organoids and tissues. The morning session talks will review genetic and epigenomic engineering of human cells for modeling and therapeutic purposes. The afternoon session will focus on patterning stem-cell derived multicellular constructs into defined architectures, organoids, and tissues for modeling and regenerative medicine applications.
