Course Details

The human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) course at Pathways to Stem Cell Science provides comprehensive training in validated techniques for deriving, culturing, cryopreserving, and characterizing hiPSC.

Originally developed in 2009 at the University of Southern California (USC) Stem Cell Core facility, our well-established program has helped hundreds of scientists world-wide to gain essential skills and advance in diverse careers from regenerative medicine and stem research to regulatory affairs and patent law.

Our streamlined culture protocols have been validated for use with human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) and human embryonic stem cells (hESC). We also provide ongoing support that can save you time and money by improving your research outcomes.

Whether you\'re an experienced stem cell biologist or new to the field, our hiPSC course provides the perfect opportunity to learn new skills and network with other scientists.


Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Techniques provides industry-level hands-on training in the following procedures:

-hiPSC Reprogramming (Episomal and Sendi Virus)
-Medium preparation
-Feeder free culture (mTeSR, NutriStem and StemFlex)
-Manual passaging and colony picking
-Enzymatic passaging (Accutase and ReLeSR)
-Identifying hiPSC/hESC colonies
-Cryopreservation and thawing hiPSC/hESC
-Preparation of Embryoid Bodies (scraped and spin-EBs)
-Differentiating hiPSC/hESC
-Electroporating hiPSC/hESC
-Characterizing hiPSC/hESC
-Setting up an hiPSC lab
-Troubleshooting problems
-Regulatory compliance
-Quality control monitoring hiPSC/hESC

Curriculum is updated annually to reflect current techniques. Feeder dependent culture methods can be taught upon request for an extra cost.

    Wesley Tierney

    This course is interesting, fun, and good training for working with not only human stem cells, but also teaches you good techniques for working with all types of cell culture. Dr. Fox gives students both guidance and freedom to attempt complicated assays within a good teaching environment – Wesley Tierney, 2017 participant.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Dr. Avinash Srivastava, City of Hope

    This was the most informative source of educational and hands-on training I have encountered in Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Techniques. The course coordinator, Dr. Victoria Fox is very knowledgeable, and her solid scientific research background in stem cells offered a good perspective of laboratory and clinical studies. The execution of the program was extremely well organized. It was small enough that the hands-on breakout sessions in the afternoon were intimate enough to fully participate and ask questions freely. This concise 5-day course changed my approach to stem cell acquisition and helped tremendously in my research. I recommend this course to anyone new or experienced in the changing world of stem cell research – Dr. Avinash Srivastava, City of Hope Scientist and 2017 participant.
