Conference Brochure

EMBO Practical Course: Techniques for Mammary Gland Research is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be held from Mar 01 - 06, 2020 at EMBL Advanced Training Centre, Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany.

Audience:
This course targets PhD students, post-docs and other scientists entering the field of mammary gland biology and breast cancer or those who wish to complement their knowledge using mouse or human methods.

Description:
The mammary epithelium is a unique organ in that the majority of its development occurs postnatally. This, combined with ease of experimental access and a stereotypical growth pattern, make it an ideal tissue for studying cellular homeostasis, branching morphogenesis, hormonal effects, stem cell biology and breast cancer. 

This theoretical and practical course will present techniques for the dissection and dissociation of different subpopulations of both mouse and human mammary, including stem/progenitor, cells. It will also include flow cytometry to separate single cell populations for the consequent in vitro (mammosphere and 3D cultures) and in vivo (mouse mammary fat-pad clearing and cell transplantation) analysis to assess stem cell activity and gene function.

Modules/Resources:
This theoretical and practical course will present techniques for the dissection and dissociation of different subpopulation of both mouse and human mammary cells, including stem/progenitor cells. It will also include flow cytometry to separate single cell populations for the consequent in vitro (mammosphere and 3D cultures) and in vivo (mouse mammary fat pad clearing and cell transplantation) analysis to assess stem cell activity and gene function. Finally, single cells and cell structures will be analysed by cell imaging, which takes advantage of the extraordinary facilities and expertise at EMBL-HD and constitutes a strong component of the course.

Learning Outcomes:
The participants will learn about the complete workflow for mammary gland studies and gain an understanding about possibilities and limitations of working with mouse and human systems.

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
