Applications of the Hematopoietic Progenitor Assay Training
March 13 - 15, 2019
This course focuses on hematopoietic progenitor assays for human, mouse and rat samples with an emphasis on applying the colony-forming unit (CFU) assay to your research. Participants will gain confidence in performing the CFU assay, identifying and enumerating hematopoietic progenitor cells. The use of the CFU assay in drug development and predictive toxicity testing is also discussed. Participants will learn how to effectively design in vitro and in vivo assays to understand the effects of biological pathways on hematopoietic homeostasis and also how to evaluate the effect of compounds on blood and bone marrow using various mouse models.
