Statewide Symposium in Regenerative Medicine
The Statewide Symposium will bring together Arizona's lead scientists, clinicians, and other industry leaders in the areas of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. Technical and scientific sessions will highlight emerging research in the areas of developmental biology, disease modeling, and translational cell therapy. A pre-conference workshop will provide select students and researchers an opportunity to receive hands-on training in pluripotent stem cell culture and manipulation. Following the meeting, a post-conference stakeholder’s forum will allow for the development of a strategic collaborative plan to foster the development of Arizona as a leader in regenerative medicine research, education, and workforce development. Due to generous support from the Arizona Board of Regents and our sponsors, there is no fee to attend the Symposium
Congratulations to Samantha Harris, PhD for her promotion to full Professor, and to Julie Ledford, PhD for her promotion to Associate Professor!

The Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine is delighted to welcome the following new Molecular Medicine PhD students to our department: Hao Zhang (Cusanovich Lab) and Yaeren Hernandez (Granzier Lab). We also extend a friendly welcome to the following PhD students who will be working in labs with CMM faculty: Selina Kindelay (Genetics GIDP - Maggert Lab) and Reeba Varghese (Cancer Bio GIDP - Thorne Lab).
Pre-Symposium Workshop: Introduction to Working with Human Pluripotent Stem Cells
The 3-day pre-symposium workshop will be held Wednesday May 15 to Friday May 17, 2019 at 12:30pm. It will provide undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, or research scientists a hands-on introduction to culture and manipulations of human pluripotent stem cells.
(There are a limited number of slots and selection will be determined by the symposium planning committee.)
There is no fee to attend the workshop, but registration is required.
In addition, travel costs, meals, and lodging will be covered for selected participants. Applications must be received by Friday, April 1, 2019.
