Stem Cell Center lectures
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lund Stem Cell Center's annual Retreat has been cancelled and therefore, as a replacement activity, a set of zoom lectures by outstanding scientists from different strategic areas of molecular and cell biology related to stem cell research have been booked over the course of the autumn term.
September: New frontiers and implications of new species models
Date: Wednesday 2nd September at 15:00 - 16:30:
Title: Mechanisms of longevity
Topic: Investigating fundamental molecular and cellular mechanisms of aging using naked mole-rats.
Title: Ferret pluripotent stem cells: an opportunity to evaluate autologous cell engraftment in the lung
Topic: Developments of work using ferrets as a model system to study lung pathophysiology.
Organisers & chairs: Karolina Pircs, Cristian Bellodi & Claire McKay
October: Frontiers in the Development of New Gene Therapy Delivery
Date: Thursday 1st October at 15:30 - 17:00
Title: Advanced genetic engineering of hematopoiesis to treat inherited disease and cancer
Title: Engineered gene delivery vectors for high-precision minimally-invasive study and repair of diseased
