Stem Cells from the Sofa Speaker Series: Dr. Jim Woodgett
In this installment of the Stem Cells from the Sofa speaker series Dr. Jim Woodgett, Director of Research at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, will discuss the reopening of labs after the COVID-19 restrictions are eased.
Research has largely been shut down since the middle of March but there are increasing signs not only of buds on trees but plans for restoration of research activities. This needs to be carefully planned and depends on a number of factors that aren’t necessarily obvious. What are labs and research institutes doing to restore sanity in our pets and what can I do to help? Jim will discuss the processes the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute is going through, the conditions and why the return environment will not be the same as when we left it seemingly 10 years ago.
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.
