Gastruloids are 3D aggregates of pluripotent stem cells that can generate polarised gene expression, establish spatially organised germ layers and undergo morphological elongation. In both their spatial and temporal progression, they mimic features of early embryonic patterning and can therefore be used to study early developmental processes such as gastrulation and axial extension. In this masterclass, the speakers will •discuss the background and principles of gastruloid systems, •provide detailed explanation of the protocol, troubleshooting steps and tips to ensure maximal reproducibility, •discuss how gastruloids can be applied to specific research questions. Pizza and drinks will be provided!

All (Postdocs, students, PIs, technicians etc.) are welcome. Hope to see you there!
