Fall 2014 Campus Lab Meeting Schedule

This event is held in the center of campus at the new Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery (most weeks), making it easy for all groups to attend. It currently attracts up to 100 students, post-doctoral fellows, staff and faculty each week. The structure is flexible and will encompass 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 will usually be held on Tuesdays from noon to 1:00 P.M. in the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery (WID) (in the Forum, Town Center, on the first floor) unless otherwise indicated. Sandwiches will be served (water is provided; please bring other beverages if you wish.) Contact Sue Gilbert (or subscribe to our google group [see link at bottome of this page]) for more information or to be added to the Stem Cell Research mailing list.

This seminar series can also be taken for credit. It is listed as Anatomy 675: Topics in Anatomy: Stem Cell Seminar. Intended for juniors, seniors and graduate students (previous biology courseword is recommended.) 1 credit is offered for attendance and participation in the Campus Stem Cell Lab meeting that meets weekly to hear presentations of current research as well as discussion of relevant journal articles.  It will be section ANAT 675-021 for fall 2014 semester.
