Past Events

Columbia Stem Cell Day, 2011

May 23rd.

Columbia Stem Cell day 2011 was held on Monday May 23, 2011 in the Myrna Daniels Auditorium at Milstein Hospital. The event was attended by more than 225 attendees, including some from outside Columbia University. Dr. Hynek Wichterle was in charge of organizing the scientific program. Talks were presented by distinguished scientists of the Stem Cell community at Columbia except for the Keynote speaker David T. Scadden, MD, co-director of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, co-chair and professor of the Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine at Harvard, and director of the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. At lunch time, students and postdocs of Columbia University presented 54 posters on their research on Stem Cells at the adjacent Riverview Terrace. From the abstracts of the posters submitted before the event, four were selected for oral presentation. Our sponsors, Lonza Walkersville, MTI-Global Stem and Fischer Scientific exhibited informational booths which were visited by the attendees throughout the event. Overall the event was a huge success. Thanks to all the sponsors, participants, volunteers and organizers who contributed to the success of it.
