Stem cells have the spectacular ability to restore the function of damaged tissues, providing major opportunities for fundamental studies on organogenesis, regeneration, diseases, and ageing. In spite of intense research in this field, many unanswered questions remain regarding stem cell regulation and function. The Advances in Stem Cell Biology MOOC was created to provide an overview of stem cell biology, the properties of stem cells and their potential in directing organogenesis and regeneration in different organisms, and how they can be exploited for therapeutic purposes.
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Summarize the general concepts in stem cell biology
- Describe how tissue specific stem cells participate in organogenesis
- Explain how to derive pluripotent stem cells
- Define how organoids can help to understand development biology
- Discuss stem cell applications for therapeutic purposes
