Induced-pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) technology for cardiac repair
17 March 2022, from
WG on Cardiovascular Regenerative & Reparative Medicine
Professor J. Leor (Tel Aviv, IL)
Doctor N. Montserrat (Barcelona, ES)
Professor W. Zimmermann (Gottingen, DE)
Agenda of the webinar:
Speaker: Doctor Nuria Monserrat
Title: iPS-derived cardiac myocytes in cardiac repair
Speaker: Professor Wolframm Zimmermann
Title: Engineered Human Myocardium: from preclinical development to “first in man”
Needs assessment and expected educational outcome:
To update the scientific community about pluripotent stem cell-based approaches that may revolutionise the treatment of advanced heart failure, as well as current standard-of-care and clinical practice guidelines. Advanced heart failure lacks definitive treatment except for heart transplantation, which has well-known complications, including primary graft failure and chronic transplant vasculopathy. Therefore, new therapies need to be developed to improve the quality of life and survival of patients with advanced cardiovascular disease.
After watching this webinar, participants will be able to:
- know the latest advances with iPSC technologies in cardiovascular reparative medicine;
- discuss optimal translational strategies to achieve meaningful results in clinical trials; and
- anticipate future pluripotent stem cell-based approaches in the field of cardiovascular reparative medicine.
This programme is supported by Novo Nordisk in the form of an educational grant. The scientific programme has not been influenced in any way by its sponsor.
