Stem Cell Course: Stem Cells in Development and Regeneration

This class with ISCRM’s Prof. Hannele Ruohola-Baker, Prof. Julie Mathieu and Prof. Jessica Young covers the recent findings on three topics: adult and embryonic stem cell classes and their niches, epigenetic control of stem cells, and stem cells in human disease. After this class, students should have a solid foundation on stem cell biology, epigenetic analysis and regulation of stem cells and human diseases connected to stem cell biology. The course will go through recent seminal papers on stem cell biology. Students will develop a stem cell research proposal with the help of a chosen faculty member, write a one-page abstract on the idea, and present the proposal to the class.

This is a graduate level course, but is open to undergraduates with permission from instructor. It will be offered next in Winter 2025.
