2011-2012 Stem Cell Seminars Schedule

 

The Stem Cell Club is a series of regularly scheduled research seminars that are intended to expose individuals to the stem cell biology research that is taking place at NYUSoM and throughout the country.   The seminar series consists of presentations given by members of the Kimmel Center for Stem Cell Biology and by invited researchers from around the world that are working on stem cell biology.  These faculty members are all working at the forefront of stem cell biology research and can provide novel insights into their area of expertise. 

Stem Cell Club takes place every other Tuesday at 2:00PM in Skirball 4th floor seminar room and is open to all NYU Langone Medical Center faculty, trainees, and staff.  Refreshments will be served.

If you have any questions about the Stem Cell Club or have suggestions of faculty to give seminars, please email: E. Lynette Wilson or Julia Gelman

The Stem Cell Club is co-sponsored by the Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Center for Stem Cell Biology and the NYU Cancer Institute
