December iPSC Training: Early Drug Discovery Unit (EDDU)
Human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) training
Wednesday and Thursday, December 4-5, 2019
NWB150, North Wing, The Neuro
A comprehensive 2-day workshop on deriving and maintaining high quality human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) from somatic cells using a defined and feeder-free system, with an emphasis on iPSC reprogramming, iPSC maintenance and quality control measures. We will also cover differentiation of these cells to neuronal progenitor cells and briefly cover CRISPR genome editing of iPSCs.
We will discuss and demonstrate important aspects of these workflows and participants will receive hands on experience with all techniques.
Breakfast and lunch provided, registration fee waived for McGill students’ trainees. $500 for all non-McGill students and trainees (payable once accepted) Maximum participants: 10
