With additional support from the UK National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs) and the British Toxicology Society (BTS). This workshop provides funds for PhD students and Post-docs to visit Newcastle University for a workshop based around the use of a pancreatic progenitor cell (B-13) to generate hepatocyte-like cells in vitro. The workshop will be held either side of the 2014 Eurotox meeting in Edinburgh and will involve lectures and hands on experience of B-13 culture in the Wright lab (http://www.ncl.ac.uk/icm/people/profile/matthew.wright) prior to the Eurotox meeting. On the return visit, hepatocytes generated will be examined and/or harvested for analyses. In addition, attendees will be able to collect progenitors for use in their own labs.
