The DanStem Seminar Series 2015
The DanStem Seminar Series focus on topics within stem cell and developmental biology. It features Internationally renowned scientists and is organized and coordinated by DanStem's Principal Investigator Professor Anne Grapin-Botton, DanStem
Most seminars take place on Wednesdays, starting at 12:00.
Venue: The Panum Institute, Building 6, 2nd floor, The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research, Seminar room, (Map). Please note that due to renovations, the entrance at Blegdamsvej is the staircase outside of building 6
