Train and learn with us at the EDDU.

Our Training and Outreach working group is involved in a variety of activities designed to help researchers learn how to use iPSCs in their projects, and to provide opportunities for them to engage with others in the iPSC field.


“Introduction to iPSCs” hands-on workshops


Access to virtual training resources

  • Through the Neuro YouTube channel you can access videos of our iPSC protocols in up to six different languages to learn how to culture iPSCs and iPSC-derived neural cells.


Open protocols

  • Development of openly available protocols for culturing iPSCs and differentiating iPSCs into specific cell types
  • Visit our data portal for more information about our iPSC protocols


Open access software

  • Development of openly available software to accelerate data analysis  
  • To learn more about our software, visit our data portal


Undergraduate training opportunities

  • Opportunities for undergraduate students to work within the EDDU
  • Mentored by senior researcher with opportunities for projects from stem cells to developing image analysis software
