Year 4

The TSRI Shared Laboratory and Training Center serves the public by providing laboratory tours, public lectures, and special events for public education. New scientific collaborations were established in the past year and there are currently more than 45 active collaborations with local and international researchers. These groups published a remarkable number of scientific papers last year.
The center remains active in Cell Biology, Genomics, and High-Throughput Screening (HTS). The training courses now include training in induced pluripotent stem cell technology. The courses included training for several Bridges to Stem Cell Research groups, local graduate students, and
postdoctoral fellows.

We plan to maintain our level of involvement with the public, and will participate in events organized by interested lay people.
