The DanStem Seminar Series 2017

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 12:15 

Venue: The Panum Institute, Building 6, 2nd floor, The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research, Seminar room, (Map of Panum), or the Mærsk Tower. Please check the venue for each seminar.
