REVIEWS FROM PREVIOUS SESSIONS:

“I don’t think this much info could be done any better in this timeframe!”

Keith Turner, Program Head, BCIT Biotechnology, British Columbia Institute of Technology

“Superb! Perfect combination of theory and hands-on practice. Level was just right. Clone Dave.”

Robert Ungar, MD, Los Angeles

“The workshop went far beyond my expectations. I now feel ready to introduce several new techniques to my lab, but beyond that, I will now be better able to teach my class in September. Dave is a fantastic teacher, and I can only hope that some of that will have rubbed off.”

Matt S. Ramer, Asoociate Professor Department of Zoology/Neuroscience, British Columbia Neurotrauma Fund Chair
