iPSC Culture Course at UC-AMC

March 10-17, 2014


​The iPSC Core at the Charles C Gates Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Biology (www.medschool.ucdenver.edu/iPS ) is offering an iPS cell (iPSC) culture course. This one week course will focus on techniques required to maintain, preserve and amplify iPSC. Topics include: passage of mouse and human iPS cells; techniques to maintain iPSC in a pluripotent state; cryo-preservation and thawing of iPSC and transitioning of iPSC from feeders to feeder-free cell culture systems.  Proficient tissue cell culture skills are required for this hands-on class. The initial class will be restricted to 4 participants. Further classes will be offered depending on demand. To register, email iPSCore@ucdenver.edu by February 14, 2014.  The class will be March 10-17th, 2014. The cost is $1500 per participant.
