Speaker: David T. Scadden, MD Gerald and Darlene Jordan Professor of Medicine, Co-chair, Harvard Stem Cell Institute, Chair, Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, Harvard University, Director, Center for Regenerative Medicine; Massachusetts General Hospital
Seminar Abstract: The blood has taught us much about how tissues are made and repaired using stem cells. But the textbook model of blood production does not match emerging data. This lecture will focus on new concepts in hematopoiesis and their implications for tissue homeostasis and disease.
Entry instructions: There is no cost to attend the seminar. If you are interested in attending please contact Meghan Spencer. Please check in with security at the Novartis visitor's entrance of 220 Massachusetts Avenue and you will be directed to the location of the seminar.
