TECHNOBEAT Session at

6th Annual German Stem Cells Network Conference in Heidelberg

 

 

In its ongoing efforts to engage with the scientific community and disseminate latest findings, TECHNOBEAT is happy to host a workshop at this year's GSCN Conference.

 

The session will start off with a special keynote by Prof. Michael Laflamme, from Toronto General Hospital Research Institute, University Health Network and Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering, Toronto, Canada on the topic of Human Embryonic Stem Cell-Derived Cardiomyocytes Regenerate the Infarcted Pig Heart.

 

 
Furthermore, 5 talks by junior researchers from the TECHNOBEAT consortium will be offered:

 

Demkes, E., University Medical Center, Utrecht, Netherlands
Increased Retention of Cardiac Cell Aggregates in a Porcine Model of Myocardial Infarction
 
Giacomelli, E., Leiden University Medical Center, Netherlands
Human Stem Cell-Derived Cardiac Fibroblasts Enhance Structural and Functional Cardiomyocyte Maturation in a Three-Dimensional Microtissue Environment
 
Halliwell, J., University of Sheffield, United Kingdom
The detection and minimisation of genetically variant stem cells in human pluripotent stem cell cultures
 

Halloin, C., Hannover Medical School, Germany
Chemically defined cardiomyogenic differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells in bioreactors
 
Peking, P., Paracelsus Medizinische Privatuniversität, Salzburg, Austria

 TECHNOBEAT Meeting for Regenerative Medicine

 

 

From iPSCs to Translation

Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel

 

The TECHNOBEAT consortium, under the lead of MHH and project partner KADIMASTEM, hosted the first official satellite meeting at the renowned Weizmann Institute of Science. The half-day event was attended by the wider scientific community engaged in regenerative science, biomedical research and (pre-)clinical translation.

 


Consortium Meetings

 

 

2018

 

TECHNOBEAT Consortium organises 3rd General Assembly

 

Hosted by the Consortium Partner KADIMASTEM on March 6th-7th, 2018 the event focused on progress of the work packages since the first periodic report was submitted in August 2017. The principal investigators presented the general overview of their work packages, supplemented by an in-depth overview of data and results to date by the researchers.

 

Further to the discussion of results, upcoming activities and additional points of intersection and cooperation were identified and agreed on.

 

As last year, two members of the TECHNOBEAT Scientific Advisory Board also attended the General Assembly and gave their input and advice during the session "Bioprocessing technologies for hiPSC: current status".

During the subsequent Steering Committee Meeting upcoming events geared towards the scientific community, general outreach events and dissemination activities were planned and agreed on.

2017

 

TECHNOBEAT Consortium meets for 2nd General Assembly

 

Hosted by the Consortium Partner DASGIP-Eppendorf on February 16th-17th, 2017 the event focused on progress of the first 12 months of work. The principal investigators presented the general overview of their work packages, supplemented by an in-depth overview of data and results to date by the researchers.

Further to the discussion of results, upcoming activities and additional points of intersection and cooperation were identified and agreed on.

 

A highlight was the presence of two members of the TECHNOBEAT Scientific Advisory Board who also held expert advisor key note speeches.

Prof. Loren J. Field, Indiana University School of Medicine
Current status of cell based heart repair

Prof. Paul J. Fairchild, Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford
Immunological barriers to cell replacement therapy in animal models and prospects for the induction of immunological tolerance

2016

 

TECHNOBEAT Consortium convened first General Assembly Meeting


The kick-off event was conducted on March 3rd-4th, 2016 in Salzburg, Austria hosted by the Consortium Partner Paracelsus Medizinische Privatuniversität (PMU). The key focus of the meeting was to strengthen pre-established ties of the network, to define and resolve regulatory, organisational and practical issues, and to define the details of project tasks at hand. The work package leaders presented the upcoming activities in detail and discussed any potential challenges.

 

Subsequently, the inaugural gathering of TECHNOBEAT’s Steering committee was conducted to prepare and plan, thereby setting a positive, uniting tone for the operating mode within the consortium. Overall the kick-off helped partners to get to know each other’s strengths and capabilities, to foster the productive working relationships and to enhance communication networks.
