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.
- Lectures and hands-on training for working with iPSCs
- Trainers from the EDDU and STEMCELL Technologies
- Sponsorship provided by McGill’s Healthy Brains, Healthy Lives (HBHL) and STEMCELL Technologies
- The EDDU also hosts annual iPSC workshops, which have been held virtually for the last few years. These are excellent opportunities to learn about working with human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) and how they can be differentiated into neuronal cell types. For more details, see the June 2023 workshop.
- 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.
- Development of openly available protocols for culturing iPSCs and differentiating iPSCs into specific cell types
- Visit our community and resource hub for more information about our iPSC protocols
- Development of openly available software to accelerate data analysis
- To learn more about our software, visit our community and resource hub
- 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
- Contact genevieve.dorval [at] mcgill.ca (Genevieve Dorval) for further information on how you can join the team.
- The Neuro’s iPSC Seminar Series welcomes trainees and senior scientists working with induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to present their cutting-edge research
