Stem Cell Workshop

Course on "Human pluripotent stem cell culture (iPSC/ESC) and neural differentiation"

The hands-on course on “Human pluripotent stem cell culture (iPSC/ESC) and neural differentiation” is a joint activity of the Austrian Neuroscience Association (ANA) and IMBA. ANA Meetings are meant to provide a platform for information exchange primarily within the Austrian Neuroscience Community. We do, however, welcome international participants, in particular for the Hands-on course on Human Stem Cells (iPSC/ESC).

The workshop will take place on September 26-27, 2017 at the IMBA, Dr. Bohr-Gasse 3, 1030 Vienna, Austria.

Course registration via the ANA website. Fees apply.
