Training

The iPS Core offers seasonal training workshops for the scientific community. Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty with cell culture experience from Harvard, other universities, or industry are invited to sign up. The workshops are valuable for any laboratory that orders stem cell lines.

The next training will be held on the Harvard campus in October. Details forthcoming.
