About

Join us every fourth Thursday at noon to learn more about stem cells and regenerative medicine. The webinar series will feature leading scientists in the field, including MRM Principal Investigators and external guest speakers.

For each seminar, we will also highlight the work of one MRM Trainee, who will present alongside our guest speaker.

We want to hear from you, and we welcome your suggestions for speakers! If you are interested in hosting an invited speaker, please get in touch with us.
