Bone Tissue Engineering Utilizing Adult Stem Cells

This talk will focus on utilizing adult stem cells from various sources for bone tissue engineering. Areas of emphasis will include cell source considerations, delivery methods, and timing of delivery for positive therapeutic outcomes.

Jon Sylvester - Advisor, Todd Streelman, PhD

Competing Signals Drive Telencephalon Diversity

Despite extensive study, it isn’t understood how evolution has sculpted the telencephalon in distinct lineages. Lake Malawi cichlid fishes show differences in telencephalon patterning between two ecotypes. We demonstrate that timing of opposing developmental signals establish this divergence and can be artificially manipulated to mimic natural differences. Competing signals in telencephalon development may drive the evolution of novel morphology.

The Graduate and Post-Doc (GaP) Seminar Series is a weekly event of research presentations by two graduate students or post-docs conducting bio-related research.  The series is organized and sponsored by the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience (IBB) with additional support from the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering. It is held every Wednesday at 12:00pm in IBB 1128 and refreshments are provided. If your research group or department would like to present at future seminars, please contact Manu Platt, PhD.
