Title: Development of serum-free media for mouse and human hematopoietic progenitor cell (HPC) expansion and maintenance

Speaker: Vanda S. Lopes, PhD, Senior Scientist

Chair: Dr. Jessie H-T Ni, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer, R&D Department

Description: Robust expansion of hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPC) ex vivo is critical to support successful therapies, but the ability to generate consistently high quality cells remains a challenge. A high performing HPC expansion medium that closely meets clinical quality requirements is an essential component to reach that goal. In this workshop we will share the development of a serum-free expansion medium for mouse HPC culture and a serum- and xeno-free formulation for human HPC expansion. The performance of the media was assessed and verified on quality expansions of mouse HPCs derived from young adult bone marrow, or human CD34+ cells isolated from cord blood.
