Cell Culture Techniques Workshop combines classroom and laboratory work

The purpose of the four-day Cell Culture Techniques Workshop is to provide a solid understanding of basic cell culture techniques through classroom and laboratory work. It provides prerequisite training for the culture of numerous cell types, including stem cells. Students gain significant experience in the manipulation of cells through culture.

Through hands-on training and lectures, you will learn the biological basis and relevance of the process of culturing cells. This will allow you to translate the techniques and information learned in this workshop into your own laboratory.

Topics covered in the course are:

  • Introduction to cell and tissue culture
  • Serum-containing and serum-free culture media
  • Trypsinization
  • Cell counting
  • Viability and growth curves
  • Growth of adherent and suspension cultures
  • Differentiation and attachment
  • Adaptation to suspension culture
  • Adaptation to serum-free media
  • Transfection technologies and reporter assays
  • Cryopreservation and cryothawing
  • Cell cloning
  • Primary culture
  • The cell cycle
  • Apoptosis
  • Cell culture

The course is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m from June 7 through June 10 at the BioTechnical Institute of Maryland, 1101 W. Pratt St. Online registration is now open.
