Stem Cells from the Sofa Speaker Series: Dr. Freda Miller
In this episode of Stem Cells from the Sofa, Dr. Freda Miller, Professor at the Michael Smith Laboratories and Department of Medical Genetics, University of British Columbia, and Senior Scientist at the Hospital for Sick Children, discusses recent work identifying mechanisms that regulate establishment of the postnatal neural stem cell pool, and that then allow the genesis of specific types of mammalian neurons. The possibility that these endogenous precursors might be recruited to promote human pediatric brain repair will also be discussed.
Dr. Millers’s talk is entitled, “Making neurons from neural stem cells during normal and pathological brain development”
The Stem Cells from the Sofa speaker talks are 20 minutes in length, followed by a Q&A session that is open to all attendees. Intended audience: scientists, trainees and research professionals.
