What are Stem Cells? – Young Scientists interacting with Public Health Students

interaction

On Friday November 20, 2015 a group of Public Health Students visited DanStem in the context of a class in ‘Science and Technology Studies’.

At DanStem the Public Health students had the opportunity to visit laboratories, see our research facilities and to interact with DanStem PhD students. During short presentations three DanStem students guided their audience through the background, methods and implications of their projects and ended up having a long interactive discussion about stem cell research that excited both sides alike.

In their lecture series taught by Associate Professor Aaro Tupasela the public health students learn about perspectives employed in the investigation of medical knowledge production, the role of technology in how we understand disease and illness, how bodies are governed, as well as how issues of identity and politics relate to medical practices.
