    Step into the shoes of a stem cell researcher. 
    Work hands-on in a biotech reserch laboratory with neural, cancer and pluripotent stem cells. 
    Gain essential lab skills exploring the exciting science of stem cell biology. 


    INTRO TO STEM CELL SYSTEMS is an entry-level course aimed at STEM enthusiasts who are interested in gaining real-world experience.

    Participants learn essential concepts in stem cell science through hands-on lab classes that explore the biology and application of human stem cells.

    The program is taught in a biotech research facility by professional scientists who are also exceptional mentors.

    Each day focuses on a different topic in stem cell biology, creating an in-depth overview of the history, science, and ethics of stem cell research.


    Intro to Stem Cell Systems provides:

    – Advanced training in real-life techniques for isolating, culturing, and researching human stem cells.

    – Practical experience working with the three predominant stem cell research models – cancer, adult (neural) and induced pluripotent.

    – Daily college-level lectures that provide a conceptual overview of the lab-classes.

    – An introduction to literature searching using PubMed and Google Scholar.

    – A literature research activity focusing on the dangers of unregulated stem cell therapies and the clinics that promote them.

    – Exposure to biotechnology and real-world science.

    – Applicable skills and knowledge for future STEM programs such as AP biology, science fair research, college lab classes and workplace internships.

    – An opportunity to connect with other science enthusiasts.

    – A certificate of completion.

    – A resource pack containing guidance and information relating to STEM careers.



    Intro to Stem Cell Systems covers the following topics in stem cell science:

    Day 1: Basic stem cell biology and stem cell culture techniques

    Day 2: Cancer stem cells

    Day 3: Pluripotent stem cells

    Day 4: Adult stem cells
