Reprogramming and Cultivation of iPSC – Hands-on training course

Reprogramming and Cultivation of iPSC – Hands-on training course

Last weekend, on 9-10 September, it took place the first edition of CorEuStem hands-on iPSC training school at Erasmus Medical Center, in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The course covered two days of talks and laboratory practice using human iPSC. Students from seven different countries learned how to thaw, split and cryopreserve iPSC, as well as manually pick colonies and expand erythroid progenitors from fresh blood. Microscopic observation of iPSC cultured under different media and matrix conditions (feeder and non-feeder dependent) was also performed, providing a very comprehensive overview of state of the art techniques and details currently used in different European Core Facilities.

The course was led by WG4 leaders, Dr. Mehrnaz Ghazvini (Erasmus MC, NL) and Dr. Una Riekstina (University of Latvia, LV), together with Dr. Lyn Healey (Francis Crick, UK), Dr. Minal Patel (Welcome Sanger, UK) and Dr. Jacopo Zasso (Human Technopole, IT).
