Course Description

During the EiHS Regenerative Medicine and Disease Modeling Program, participating students learn from start to finish how human induced pluripotent stem cells are created from skin cells then converted into heart cells that beat in the culture dish. Each participant creates their own culture of beating heart cells, following the same real-life methods as stem cell researchers. Through the combined use of college-level lectures and laboratory classes, students receive comprehensive training in modern research techniques, working with sophisticated laboratory equipment alongside industry scientists. They also connect with internationally renowned researchers during guest lectures focusing on the role of stem cells in basic, pre-clinical and clinical research.

 

The Regenerative Medicine and Disease Modeling Program is an advanced ten-day course aimed at science enthusiasts who are interested in taking their education to the next level with hands-on training in research-level techniques. Taught by stem cell experts in an entrepreneurial biotech laboratory, this ground-breaking course is the only one of its kind in the world. In addition to hands-on skills, course participants learn about the complexities of forging a bioscience career during a career development seminar, lead by academic and industry scientists. They are also introduced to independent research skills, during "stem cell fact or fiction" - an interactive lecture-discussion which demonstrates real-world methods for finding published research and applying scientific data to debunk stem cell myths.

 

The Regenerative Medicine and Disease Modeling Program culminates with a special feature seminar covering the latest discoveries in the field of heart disease research.  Join this unique program today and learn first-hand how human stem cells may one day be used to regenerate human hearts!
