ISSCR 2017 Innovation Showcase

About our Speakers

About our Speakers

Benjamin Freedman, Ph.D., Assistant Professor University of Washington

Dr. Freedman will discuss the generation of human kidney organoids from pluripotent stem cells, and how this new technology is currently being applied to model disease, toxicity, and regeneration.

Dr. Freedman has studied vertebrate stem cells for two decades at four of the world’s premier universities. He performed his doctoral studies at the University of California at Berkeley and postdoctoral studies at Harvard Medical School. Hallmarks of his work include quantitative functional analysis of genetic mutants and reconstitution of complex phenomena in defined component systems. His lab is located in Seattle, Washington.

Anna Falk, Ph.D., Principal Investigator and Associate Professor, Falk Laboratory at the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm

Dr. Anna Falk will discuss standardization of reprogramming and iPS cell cultures in defined and xeno-free conditions to minimize line variation for accurate and faithful in vitro disease modeling of human brain diseases.

Dr. Falk has almost 20 years’ experience in stem cell research. She holds a Ph.D. from Karolinska Institutet and was a post-doc at the Stem Cell Institute at the University of Cambridge, UK from 2007-2010. In 2012, Dr. Falk started her own research group, and is serving as Principal Investigator, where she is leading a research team in using iPS cells and neural differentiation to create in vitro models for human brain development in healthy and diseased samples. In addition, Dr. Falk established and serves as the director of the human iPS Core at Karolinska Institutet.

Keith R. Olson, Ph.D., Director, Business Operations, Corning Life Sciences

Dr. Keith Olson is the Director of Business Operations for Corning Life Sciences. Prior to joining Corning, Dr. Olson held positions in research and development, commercial operations, sales, business development, and senior management for several companies in the life sciences industry.

Dr. Olson holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Cell Biology from Carnegie Mellon University, a Master’s degree in Molecular Biology from the University of Rochester, and a Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Rochester.

Surface Selection Guide by Cell Type

The use of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins (natural, synthetic, or mimetic) as coatings on the cultureware allows the development of cell type specific model systems which more closely mimic in vivo conditions. Use the Corning selection guide to help you choose the best surface for your application and cell type.
