Learn how to effectively maintain and characterize high-quality human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) through live-streamed training delivered by experts from STEMCELL Technologies. This three-day, part-time course consists of interactive lectures and laboratory demonstrations designed to teach you essential techniques for culturing hPSCs in a feeder-independent system and how to assess hPSC lines for building a well-characterized working cell bank.

Learning Outcomes
• Identify high-quality morphological characteristics of hPSCs and describe critical quality attributes of hPSCs.
• Understand and apply the best practical skills in maintaining high-quality hPSC cultures.
• Identify undifferentiated morphology of confluent induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) ready for passaging.
• Recognize critical aspects of handling hPSCs for successful preservation and storage.
• Identify and troubleshoot critical aspects in the passaging and maintenance of undifferentiated iPSCs.
• Evaluate the recovery of iPSCs and identify viable cells.
• Understand the importance of maintaining hPSC quality.
• Recognize the importance of key quality control procedures and the potential consequences of failing to carry them out.
• Be aware of how genomic instability can impact hPSC cultures.

Thank you for taking the time to make this course online. It helped keep my lab on-track during this chaotic research-limiting year. I do not think my learning experience was sacrificed in any way with this course being online.

Tyler Wenzel, University of Saskatchewan

I was very surprised at the set up in the lab and how we got to see everything at multiple points in the process. Great job!
