Professional Programs

Introduction

Helping professional scientists achieve their research goals with stem cells.

Pathways to Stem Cell Science offers industry-level programs for working scientists to gain hands-on training with human stem cells. Whether you’re an experienced stem cell biologist or a trainee scientist, our programs can provide you with advanced skills and knowledge for specialized job applications.

Originally developed in 2008 at the University of Southern California, our well-established industry-level courses offer validated protocols that are easy to follow, cost effective and streamlined for use in any laboratory. Participating scientists gain comprehensive training in validated techniques for culturing, freezing and manipulating human stem cells. To save you time and money we develop optimized methods using rigorously tested materials that improve work efficiency and research outcomes.

Our internationally renowned courses are attended by scientists from around the world and provide the perfect opportunity for networking with other science professionals. Unlike equivalent training providers, we update our course materials on a regular basis to reflect the latest cutting-edge information and techniques. Course participants also enjoy ongoing protocol updates and support with troubleshooting problems after returning to their own laboratories.

Don’t waste time optimizing techniques, validating reagents or struggling with stem cells when our expert instructors are on hand to help you succeed. Apply to one of our professional training programs and gain a certificate of completion for your resume in addition to effective methods that will improve your productivity. With our simple registration, affordable tuition and experienced course instructors, Pathways to Stem Cell Science is the number one choice for professional stem cell training.
