Introduction

Helping college students transition out of education into paid employment through work-based training and real-world career education

m

It has been widely recognized by employers, educators and researchers alike that the knowledge-based education offered at four-year colleges is failing to prepare students with relevant skills for the 21st century workplace. In the biosciences, this “skills gap” is particularly evident in the large numbers of college graduates who lack the ability to navigate a laboratory, implement current techniques, plan practical procedures and troubleshoot technical outcomes.

At Pathways to Stem Cell Science we are working to tackle these problems by offering real-world lab training taught by experienced industry scientists in professional facilities. Participating college students enjoy the rare opportunity to plan, implement and analyze an array of critical lab procedures  – learning both hands-on techniques and essential work-based skills. Our courses also help more experienced students to hone their skills and earn professional training certificates that appeal to future employers.

More than just a lab course

We prepare students for a variety of down-stream applications from diagnostics and research, to technical support and postgraduate education – using the same approach and curriculum as professional industry training programs. Our students learn contemporary methods for deriving, culturing and manipulating human stem cells, in addition to broadly applicable techniques that are highly sought after by many bioscience employers. Students immediately notice the difference between our real-world preparatory programs and their instructional college-lab courses.

The hands-on training is complemented with lecture-discussions that present a theoretical overview of the laboratory techniques and how they are implemented in the real-world. We also provide a certificate of completion, career guidance, ongoing protocol updates and support with troubleshooting problems after entering a professional laboratory.

With our easy registration and affordable tuition, any student can simply sign up and attend college training at Pathways to Stem Cell Science. Whether you’re an undergraduate student aiming to improve your resume or a postgraduate student looking to get the most out of your graduate research project, we can help you improve your technical skills and research outcomes.
