Event Details

The 2012 Nobel Prize for Medicine or Physiology was given to two researchers whose astounding discoveries, made more than 40 years apart, illustrate how curiosity in Nature¹s inner workings provides fuel for biomedical innovation. Their findings contribute to the incredible promise of stem cell research, a promise that holds out the hope of developing new treatments for debilitating diseases like diabetes, blindness, and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

But what really are stem cells? Where are they found? Are they already being used to cure diseases? Is it ethical to use them?

Come meet Uta Grieshammer, PhD, of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine for a lively one hour discussion of current research in Stem Cell Therapy.
