This is a recurring course run by Biograd Training, please see their website for details of the dates. Mammalian Cell Culture is a highly regarded lab technique that is often requested for graduate-level researcher positions in academia and industry. Our Mammalian Cell Culture course offers comprehensive laboratory-based tuition using a range of human and animal cell lines, and thus providing a rare opportunity to pursue further education and future careers in Medicine, Pharmacology, Biology, and Biomedical Science.

Attendees will gain valuable insights into the range of careers and laboratory research opportunities available. We have links with many companies that recruit interns and graduates based on our recommendations. On completion of the course, the new skills developed by students throughout the course will be endorsed by our lecturers on LinkedIn and a reference can be provided upon request.

What the course will cover:

• All aspects of Good Cell Culture Practice (GCCP)- Aseptic technique and contamination control.
• Sterile media preparation.
• Passaging of suspension and adherent cell lines.
• Cryopreservation and resuspension of cell stocks.
• Analysis of morphology and cell counting.
• Cell separation and isolation using density centrifugation techniques.
• Cellular differentiation.
• Immunofluorescence staining technique.
• Cell viability assay (commonly used for in vitro drug predictions and nanotoxicology research).
The laboratory results obtained by the students are analysed and discussed. Strong focus is set on the student acquiring a good sterilisation technique through practical training and supervision.

Attendance Requirements

Attendees should have basic laboratory skills and be confident in a laboratory environment before attending this course. Thus, this course is aimed at undergraduates Level 4-6 who are still in the university or have just finished their studies and have a deep interest in pursuing academic research opportunities and/or a career in biotechnology.
