TheGenTAC Alliance Basic and Translational Science Working Group invites you to attend a webinar, iPSC Models of Thoracic Aortopathies: Possibilities andChallenges, on October 26 at 12:00 p.m. ET.

This webinar will provide state-of-the-art examples of using induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells for modeling thoracic aortic disease in Loeys-Dietz syndrome and Marfan syndrome. The talks will highlight how pathological mechanisms can be investigated, new drug treatments tested, and importantly, the challenges and pitfalls to be aware of for those new to this field.

Webinar speakers are:

  • Dogukan Mizrak, PhD (University of Michigan)
