SF2UF Bridge Lecture Series: Stem Cell Research in the Era of Personal Genomics by Dr. Naohiro Terada

You are invited to our third lecture of the SF2UF Bridge Lecture spring series by Dr. Naohiro Terada, Professor, Department of Pathology, Immunology and Laboratory Medicine, College of Medicine, University of Florida.

When: Tues March 14 at 12:30-1:30 p.m.
Where: Building P, room 131

In his talk, titled Stem Cell Research in the Era of Personal Genomics, Dr. Terada will discuss his research on artificially generated pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and their connection to personalized medicine. iPSCs can be generated from skin biopsies or blood samples of patients, and can be differentiated in vitro into cell types which are not easily accessible in patients, such as neurons and heart muscle cells. Dr. Terada is also the director of the Center for Cellular Reprogramming at UF.
