June 23–27, 2020 
Meet us at the first virtual meeting of the ISSCR 

Stem cells have opened up new possibilities for regenerative medicine and cellular-based therapeutic approaches. As the scientific discoveries advance, the possibility of utilizing human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) in the clinical practice becomes closer and the first induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derivatives are undergoing clinical trials. These great achievements would not be possible without a parallel improvement and refinement of translational research solutions. 

Participate in our Innovation Showcase and listen to the experts giving insights on their latest developments in moving pluripotent stem cell (PSC) research towards therapeutic applications. 

Visit our virtual booth to get to know our cutting-edge technologies for stem cell culture, cell sorting, and imaging. We would be happy to explain them to you in detail or answer your questions via the live chat. 

Innovation Showcase

From bench to bedside – pluripotent stem cell differentiation.

Date & time

Thursday, June 25, 2020 | 1:00 p.m.–2:00 p.m. EST


Two speakers present their latest developments in moving PSC research towards therapeutic applications:

Agnete Kirkeby, Ph.D. 
Associate Professor of Stem Cell Biology 
University of Copenhagen, Denmark 

Sebastian Knoebel, Ph.D.
Senior Project Manager R&D
Miltenyi Biotec, Germany


Pluripotent stem cell (PSC) research is rapidly moving towards therapeutic applications. This clinical outlook requires the implementation of workflows which ensure a seamless transition from bench to bedside.
Sebastian Knoebel will present recent developments with regards to PSC maintenance, characterization, and the latest innovations in PSC differentiation. Specifically, he will highlight how PSC workflows such as expansion and differentiation can be implemented using the new CliniMACS Prodigy® Adherent Cell Culture System together with high-quality cell culture reagents and reliable quality control solutions.
Agnete Kirkeby will give a special focus on strategies pursued in a H2020 consortium to bring hESC-derived cell products to clinical trial for Parkinson’s disease (PD). The treatment of PD has for more than 50 years relied on dopaminergic therapies that are effective early in the disease, but which are limited by severe side effects. Restoring the lost dopaminergic innervation of the striatum would represent a major advance in treating PD. Methods for producing authentic midbrain dopaminergic neurons from pluripotent cells have advanced to a stage which makes it possible to efficiently produce dopaminergic progenitors at a high purity and quality.
