Stem Cells and Cancer Journal Club

Stem Cells and Cancer Journal Club meetings take place once a month on Thursdays from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. throughout 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. Course Description.

Upcoming Presentations

May 4, 2017 Cellular Reprogramming during injury and aging -
