Thank you Prof. Zandstra

The PhD students and Postdocs of the CBBP group are grateful to Prof. Zandstra for an interesting lecture and a successful chalk-talk visit. It was great to see modellers and experimentalists discuss various aspects of stem cell research together. Thank you for taking the time to visit us!

Peter Zandstra

Prof Zandstra will be in Lund from 6 May to 9 May 2013. He will talk about “Feedback control of endogenous signaling to guide stem cell fate” in his public lecture held on Tuesday 7 May at 10.30 in Lundmarkssalen in the Astronomy Department. Coffee and cake will be served at 10.00 in the foyer. All welcome! We will also have a chalk talk session with interested PhD students and Postdocs at 16:00 at CBBP (we prefer external guests to register by email to bettina.greese@thep.lu.se for the chalk talk).

The abstract of his public lecture and a list of interesting papers can be found here.

Peter Zandstra

Prof Peter Zandstra from the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto (Canada) has also accepted our invitation to participate in the chalk-talk series. The aim of Prof Zandstra’s research is to develop strategies for regenerative medicine, in particular, the regeneration of functional tissues from stem cells. He focuses on the understanding of stem cell fate decisions in response to the extracellular environment. To archieve this, his group employs techniques from quantitative bioengineering and mathematical modeling. His visit is planned for 6 – 8 May 2013.

James Locke

Our third chalk-talk speaker will be Dr James Locke. He has recently moved from Caltech (USA), where he has worked in the group of Prof Michael Elowitz, to the Sainsbury Lab at University of Cambridge (UK), where he leads his own group. The research of Dr Locke is centered around signal transduction processes and gene circuit dynamics, which he investigates at the single cell level by a combination of experimental and modelling techniques. A particular feature of his work is the analysis of the role of noise in such systems.

Dr Locke will visit us from 30 October until 1 November 2012. His general lecture entitled “Dynamic signal encoding strategies in cells” will be given on 31 October at 14:15 in Lundmarkssalen in the Astronomy Building. Coffee and cake will be served at 14:00 in the foyer. All welcome! The chalk talk session with interested PhD students and Postdocs will take place at 16:00 at CBBP (external guests: please register by email to bettina.greese@thep.lu.se if you would like to attend the chalk talk).
