What is the HEST Workshop?

The Human Embryonic Stem Cell Workshop (HEST) at Virginia Commonwealth University is an intensive, laboratory based, course that gives participants the rare opportunity to work and train with instructors experienced in developing and propagating NIH-approved human embryonic stem (hES) cell lines, neural progenitors and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells.


Instructors for the workshop include both VCU and UGA faculty and scientists from industry. This unique relationship provides participants with an opportunity to learn recent advances in techniques and expose them to an environment that fosters academic and industrial relationships.

Is this for you?
This workshop brings together scientists with a particular training in embryology, developmental biology, tissue engineering and/or cell biology to learn the “how to” and theory of hES cells’ self renewal from a unique faculty of experts.
