Stem Cells and Cancer Journal Club

Stem Cells and Cancer Journal Club meetings take place on Thursdays during the spring semester. This journal club addresses aspects of basic cell and developmental stem cell biology (using all model organisms), cancer, and the connections linking stem cells with cancer and aging. All are welcome to attend. The journal club is offered as BIOMG 7940/7800 to students enrolled in the Stem Cell Biology Minor. Course Description.
