Millipore and Burnham Institute to Run Stem-Cell Workshops

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Millipore last week said it has developed training workshops on human stem cell research with the Burnham Institute for Medical Research.
 
Millipore and the Burnham Institute will hold four- or five-day workshops at least once per quarter. The workshops will be conducted by a team of Millipore, Burnham Institute, and independent stem-cell specialists, Millipore said.
 
As sole sponsor of the workshops, Millipore will work with the Burnham Institute to develop, organize, and execute the events. The workshops will feature laboratory experiments and technical seminars.
 
The Burnham Institute will host the workshops at its campus in La Jolla, Calif. The first workshop is tentatively scheduled for September. 
 
Interested parties will be able to register for the workshops and view syllabi and workshop information online beginning in August. Class size will initially be limited to nine participants per workshop. It will cost $1,500 to participate.
