UMD-hDMT seminar on Stem cell models for Metabolic Disorders

13 April, 2022

Stem cell models offer a promising perspective to study the tissue-specific pathophysiology of Inborn Metabolic Disorders and novel treatments. At the same time, metabolism is an important factor to consider when optimizing Organ-on-Chip models. Analysis of metabolites and understanding metabolism in such models is still a challenge that needs to be tackled. In this symposium, we will discuss advances in stem cell models and metabolism and how they can be integrated.

Date: April 13th, 2022

Location: Radboudumc

Participation is for free, but registration is required. Please register for the meeting by sending an email to e.thomassen@hdmt.technology at the latest on April 6, 2022.

Details on the location will follow upon registration.


Keynote Speakers:

  • Andries van der Meer (UTwente), ‘Organs-on-Chips: dynamic in vitro models’
  • Pim Pijnappel (Erasmus MC),  ‘A platform for human neuromuscular junction on a chip to investigate mechanisms of disease and to develop treatment options’
  • Dirk Lefeber (Radboudumc), ‘Studying (sugar) metabolism in patient-derived stem cell models’

The rest of the program will be based on selected abstracts:

United for Metabolic Diseases (UMD) is a unique, innovative and multidisciplinary collaboration with the common goal to perform innovative research in order to improve diagnosis, prevention, treatment and care for patients and families with an inherited metabolic disease.
