Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Training Course

Posted by on Aug 31, 2015 in Blog | Comments Off on Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Training Course

We will be launching our 2-day training course “ Introduction to Human Pluripotent Stem Cells” on October 6 and 7 in the iPSC Core Facility. This is a lab and lecture course with “hands-on” training.

The cost of this course is $300/participant but through the support of the CDI hPSC Core Grant, registration will be subsidized 50% to WU affiliates ($150 reduced price). Because this course includes a hands-on laboratory section, there is a maximum class size of 12 students. Registration will be on a first come, first serve basis. One full scholarship is available.

 

For registration and scholarship details contact Mariana Beltcheva, PhD: beltchevam@wustl.edu.
