The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison invites you to a series of Mini Med School sessions. Learn what you can do - and what we are discovering - to ensure better health for everybody.
The series will be led by our Mini Med School "deans":
Thursday, September 18, 2014: Regenerative Medicine - From Stem Cells to New Organs
Health Sciences Learning Center | Program: 6:30-8pm, Reception: 8-9pm
The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a leader in stem cell and regenerative medicine research, with landmark discoveries including the first successful isolation of pluripotent stem cells in 1998 by James Thomson and colleagues.
Join our experts as they follow the story of a stem cell from its initial creation, to its maturation into a somatic cell, to its function within a new organ. They will demonstrate how different types of scientists interact to build human tissues and organs from a patient’s own cells.
Learn how the field of regenerative medicine is advancing ways to better treat debilitating diseases and uncovering the fundamental processes that lead to these diseases.
