Staff Exchanges in “Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) and in Immunostainings”

July 10-27, 2019 @ WWU

Margarida Rasteiro, PhD student from Susana Lopes’ Lab (CEDOC-NMS|FCM) received training on induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) (SE2) at Niki Tomas Loges’ Lab (WWU) from 9th - 27th July 2019. The activity plan was focused on: working in a GMP-compliant facility and understanding its importance; cell culture and maintenance of hPSCs; cryopreservation, thawing, plating, and passaging techniques; reprogramming with Sendi virus and identification of iPSCs and differentiation and characterization methods for iPSCs.

Pedro Sampaio, PhD student Susana Lopes’ Lab (CEDOC-NMS|FCM) received training on immunfluorescence analyses at Heymut Omran’s laboratory (WWU) with Dr. Niki Tomas Loges as main supervisor, from 9th -16th July 2019. The training included tools for PCD diagnosis and the activity plan was focused on: clinical examination and sampling of respiratory cells for high speed videomicroscopy and immunostaining; high speed video microscopy and immunostaining developed in Omran’s lab.
