Objective of the Project

Cooperation was focused on biomedical education and stem cell biology; it aimed at deepening the bilateral relationship by promoting and intensifying contacts and mobility between both participating partners. Interactions involved practical training in the labs, extending the knowledge and practice in cell reprogramming, cell manipulation, characterization, directed differentiation, formation of 3D organoids, and mutual discussions. We carried out the optimization of array cards for gene expression in iPSCs and performed an analysis of isolated cell clones, including making a histological examination of generated organoids. Partner teams included academic workers, pre-graduate, and post-graduate students. Seminars and lectures were organized to involve a broader spectrum of investigators from related disciplines to establish further future cooperation and give students the opportunity to obtain detailed information directly from prominent experts and have discussions with them.
