The Clinical Sciences Department of the Medicine Faculty of the University of Liège organizes from the academic year 2018-2019 a University Certificate in clinical trials. More information is available in this folderRead more
One team of the GIGA has developed an artificial sensory epithelia or “Mini Ear” in vitro model mimicking the in vivo organ equivalent.
For this purpose, otic progenitor cells (hOPCs) were generated using a reproducible protocol based on the differentiation of human induced pluripotent stem (hiPS) cells. Those hOPCs are at least 90% homogenous and can be frozen and thaw ad libitum. Those cells can be further differentiated towards inner ear hair cells using a stepwise method mimicking inner ear development.

In collaboration with a team at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), researchers from GIGA-Neurosciences have discovered a new gene responsible for a seizure syndrome called juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME). This discovery was made as part of an international consortium that studies genetic abnormalities responsible for epileptic diseases. It is being published this week inRead more
The LIGHTSHEET MICROSCOPY can deliver optical sections, 3D reconstructions and timelapse movies of whole sample volumes at subcellular resolutions. The fast scan speeds and low phototoxicity of the lightsheet allow to record the development of fluorescent transgenic animals over long time periods, such as zebrafish embryos. Alternatively 3D reconstructions of fixed whole organs or whole embryos,Read more
