Oliver Smithies, Spring Stem Cell Genetics Seminar

The Genetics Program has posted information pertaining to the upcoming retreat including the day’s schedule and keynote spearker, Nobel Laureate Oliver Smithies CV (just a wee bit longer than mine, FYI).  Here is a good background on Dr. Smithies via Wikipedia.  I have seen the poster up around campus so the word is being spread.

On a separate note, the Genetics Stem Cell Seminar poster is near completion thanks in large part to Risa’s superb design capabilities.  Pending a few updates, the poster will hopefully be printed soon and posted around campus.  Nice job Risa.

We have a great set of speakers that are pushing the boundaries of this cutting edge topic.  These speakers include William Lensch (Harvard), Andrew French (Stemagen), Norm Sharpless (University of North Carolina), Rebecca Morris (Columbia University), Sean Morrison (University of Michigan) and Miguel Ramalho-Santos (University of California, San Francisco).  Keep an eye on the posted dates to make sure to see them when they’re on campus.
