The TSRI Shared Laboratory and Training Center served the public by providing laboratory tours, public lectures, and special events for public education. New scientific collaborations were established in the past years and as a result there were more than 45 active collaborations with local and international researchers. These groups published a remarkable number of scientific papers last year.
The center remained active in Cell Biology, Genomics, and High-Throughput Screening (HTS). The training courses included training in induced pluripotent stem cell technology, in addition they included training for several Bridges to Stem Cell Research groups, local graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.
As we did before, during this year we maintained our level of involvement with the public, and will participate in events organized by interested lay people.
