Co-Director of Harvard Stem Cell Institute to speak March 20
MIDDLEBURY — Human stem cells are a relatively new discovery in biomedicine. How were these cells discovered and what is their potential?
Harvard University’s Douglas Melton will address this question in a March 20 lecture at Middlebury College titled, “The promise of stem cells for cures and improved human health.”
This talk will consider the biology of stem cells and point to potential applications for new treatments of diabetes, brain and other diseases as well as enabling longer and healthier lives.
It will take place this coming Monday at 4:30 p.m. in McCardell Bicentennial Hall, Room 216, at Middlebury College. It is free and open to the public, and sponsored by the Middlebury College Department of Biology and Biology Class of ’88 Lecture Fund.
