Placental Derived Mesenchymal Cells - Isolation, Processing and Characterization

Organized by the ISCT Lab Practices Committee

Chair: Eugenia Ioannidi, PhD, Laboratory Supervisor, Stem Health Hellas, Greece

Speaker: Ornella Parolini, PhD, Director, Research Centre E.Menni, Fondazione Poliambulanza, Brescia, Italy

Learning Objectives:
  • Provide a basic overview of the normal developmental biology of the human placenta.
  • Provide a basic description of the structure of different placental regions.
  • Describe and discuss the methods used to isolate stem/progenitor cells from different placental tissues.
  • Discuss methods and results regarding the characterization of placenta-derived cells through in vitro studies, in terms of: phenotype, differentiation potential, immunomodulatory properties.
  • Discuss emerging insights on preclinical studies with placenta-derived cells.

In recent years, scientists have revealed that the placenta is a valuable source of cells for research and development of cell therapies. Indeed, different cell populations which harbor both properties of stem/progenitor cells, as well as immunomodulatory properties, have been isolated and characterized from both human and animal placental tissues. Advances in this field have also prompted researches to investigate the potential effects of these cells in preclinical animal models of different diseases and clinical applications, with encouraging results obtained to date.

This webinar will focus on the isolation, processing and characterization of placenta-derived cells, with special emphasis on mesenchymal stromal/stem cells that can be isolated from placental tissues. We will also address the most significant achievements to date in the field of placental cell-based therapeutic approaches.
