GMP-compliant iPSC reprogramming workshop May 2018

Written by RegMedNet

The workshop, held by the UK Stem Cell Bank in conjunction with the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, will take place at the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control, 21—23 May, 2018.

The UK Stem Cell Bankhas supported the national and international regenerative medicine community since 2004. We supply human pluripotent stem cell lines (hPSCs) for research and EUTCD-Grade hESC lines as starting material for the development of cellular therapies. 

In conjunction with the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, we’re running a 3-day stem cell training course combining lectures and ‘hands-on’ lab experience in our state-of-the art facilities. 

This training workshop also offers the unique opportunity to carry out stem cell culture training in a GMP compliant cleanroom facility. 

Practical training sessions include:

  • Working in a GMP-compliant facility and its importance 
  • Cell culture and maintenance of hPSCs
  • Cryopreservation, thawing, plating, and passaging techniques
  • Reprogramming with Sendi virus and identification of iPSCs
  • Differentiation and characterization methods for PSCs

These practical training sessions will be supported by lectures on cGMP cell banking, reprogramming of iPSCs, characterization of hPSCs and gene editing.
