The OSCI External Seminar Series features distinguished speakers from around the world. As part of our provincial initiative, these lectures are broadcasted to all of our centres to ensure that over 100 stem cell research programs, networked across Ontario, receive the benefit of these seminars.
Please join us for an OSCI External Seminar on Monday, June 10th at 4:00 pm for Harvey Lodish, Professor, Whitehead Institute, Cambridge, "Self-renewal of erythroid progenitor cells: molecular mechanisms and new anemia drugs". Attend in Toronto in Room #6, Lower Level, Tanz Neuroscience Building, 6 Queen's Park Circle. Unfortunately due to U of T's convocation, we will be unable to webcast this seminar.
Chat Room Instructions:
- Go to (same link every webcast): http://eos.ic.utoronto.ca/ic-chat/
- User Name: your choice but please use institution in the name so we know where the question/comment is coming from i.e. Mary_Mac or John_UWO
- Password: none needed
