ReMS Goals

The goal of ReMS is to create a forum for Stanford researchers to meet, hear about what is going on in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine at Stanford, and spark collaborations. The topics include all areas of regenerative medicine, broadly defined, ranging from fundamental biological principles and basic science advances to novel applications in biotechnology, stem cell biology, and human disease.

Venues

Seminars are every Thursday during the academic year at 12:00 noon, in either:

- Munzer Auditorium located on the ground floor of the Beckman Center in Room B060.
- Lokey G1002 located on the main floor of the Lokey SIM1 building. (Map)

Each session has two 22 minute presentations (+7 minutes for discussion, each) from Stanford faculty, postdocs and students. Or there will be a full hour long seminar from an invited world renowned expert in regenerative medicine.

The series is open to everyone, including faculty, students, postdocs, lab and office staff, so please encourage your labmates/PI/trainees to come.

Should you wish to meet with an outside speaker, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
