HUMAN PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS

Derivation, differentiation and registry of human pluripotent stem cells. Towards the development of applications in personalized medicine.

9 DECEMBER · ONLINE EVENT

Human Pluripotent Stem Cells training course

This course comprises lectures by specialized trainers from academia and industry in the field of human pluripotent stem cells. The online course is aimed to provide an overview of human pluripotent stem cells biology and differentiation. In this one day event we want to provide a scientific, technological and regulatory perspective for the development of human pluripotent stem cells derivatives for applications in personalized medicine. It will be of particular interest to PhD students and postdoctoral fellows aiming to work or already trained in the field of human pluripotent stem cells.
