FALL 2020 – SEMINAR FORMAT UPDATE Due to COVID-19:
The UW Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center will continue to offer its weekly seminar online in a live (synchronously) format, barring any international speaker time zone conflicts, at 12 PM CT so you can participate in the Q & A session in real time.

This event attracts up to 100 students, post-doctoral fellows, staff and faculty each week. The structure is flexible and encompasses presentations of current research as well as discussion of relevant journal articles. A major goal is to maintain communication within the very diverse stem cell community at UW-Madison.
The meetings are usually on Tuesdays from noon to 1 p.m. unless otherwise indicated. Contact us for more information or to be added to our mailing list.
Students may take this seminar series for credit. It is listed as Cell and Regenerative Biology 675: Topics in Cell and Regenerative Biology: Stem Cell Seminar. Intended for juniors, seniors and graduate students (previous biology course work is recommended.) 1 credit is offered for attendance and participation. See section CRB 675.
