Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine

Stem Cells @ Lunch

Stem Cells @ Lunch is a fortnightly lunchtime seminar series, hosted by the Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine as a forum for early career scientists to discuss recent data and current topics in an informal setting. 

We are always looking for great speakers (from all career stages), so if you’re interested in presenting then please contact Davide Danovi or Ines Sequeira.   

If you’re not already a member of the King's "Stem Cell mailing list", and you’d like to receive regular e-mails with the programme, then please contact Professor Watt's Executive Assistant.
  
You can also follow us on Twitter @KCLstemcells.

                    The location for all SC@L seminars is:

                                              Seminar Room
                  Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine
                                      28th floor, Tower Wing
                                               Guy's campus

Please follow signs for "Seminar Room 2" from the 28th floor lift lobby.
