You’re invited: Next installment of Prechter-Tam Bipolar Seminar Series

May 10, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Stem cells have become an essential component of the contemporary life sciences research toolbox, a cornerstone of basic, clinical and translational research throughout the world. The ability to derive stem cells from individuals with disease — either genetic or acquired — is helping experts identify the origins of the condition and thereby what new approaches might be effective in treating it.

Over the last decade, scientists have built on the revolutions in stem cell biology that make it possible to derive pluripotent stem cells from somatic cells such as skin to study Bipolar Disorder.

On Thursday, May 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Prechter Program researchers will host “Characterization of Stem Cell-Derived Exosomes and Their Impact on Recipient Cells.”

The discussion is part of the Prechter-Tam Bipolar Seminar Series.

Post-doctoral fellow Dan Schill, Ph.D., is the featured speaker, along with special guests Kristen Brennand, Ph.D., and Paola Arlotta, Ph.D.
