iPSC Seminars at the EDDU

Supported by Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives and STEMCELL Technologies, The Neuro’s iPSC Seminar Series welcomes trainees and senior scientists working with induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to present their cutting-edge research. The Seminar Series intends to foster collaborations within the network of laboratories working with iPSCs in Montreal, Canada, and around the world.
