Please be aware the Stem Cell Forum is now running every two weeks on zoom! Details below.
The Stem Cell Forum at the Francis Crick Institute is a long-standing series of seminars run by Prof. Dominique Bonnet. We invite speakers from all fields of stem cell research and enjoy a wide variety of talks from researchers both in London and from further afield. The forum usually runs with two invited PhD students or Post Docs presenting short talks and one established PI presenting a full seminar. We finish the forum with networking over food and drinks kindly supplied by our sponsors.
Email Prof. Bonnet (Dominique.Bonnet@crick.ac.uk) if you would like to be added to the mailing list, or you would like to submit an abstract for a talk.
