Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology has been pushed steadily by technical advancements and biological analysis, leading this still relatively new discovery to the forefront of stem cell research. Broad-range applications of the technique include disease modeling, drug screening and the promise for patient-matched cellular replacement therapies. Gaining expertise in reprogramming has relevance across a spectrum of research disciplines. By the end of this workshop, participants should understand and be able to apply the processes involved in the production and maintenance of iPSCs, as well as gain a strong foundation in standardized characterization methods, ensuring the quality of the stem cell lines produced. In addition, participants will begin building a national and international network of colleagues whose interests are in iPSC technology.
