“Establishing stem cell lines from mammary and lung tissue – plating at the University of Melbourne and waiting at Melbourne Park” Other events...
George Yeoh has a long standing interest in liver stem cells, specifically liver progenitor cells (LPCs) which are bipotential and able to generate hepatocytes and cholangiocytes in vitro and in vivo. His lab has gained valuable insight into the biology of LPCs by studying cell lines that are derived from liver using the “plate and wait” method he acquired while on sabbatical at the Pasteur Institute in Paris. In this seminar, an update on new findings on LPCs will be presented.

During the Austraian Open Tennis season, George applied the plate and wait method on cells isolated from the mammary gland by the Lisse-Labat/Visvader group at the WEHI and from the lung by the McQualter/Bertoncello group in Pharmacology at the University of Melbourne. These experiments and progress with establishing a mammary progenitor cell line and a lung progenitor cell line respectively will be discussed. Images and video from the Australian Open will also be presented.
Speaker(s) Professor George Yeoh
