"Controlled Culture and Chondrogenic Differentiation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells"

Challenges to control differentiation of bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) into a more specialized cell lineage remain. We evaluate the feasibility of the induction of MSC chondrogenic differentiation by the soluble factors secreted by primary chondrocytes through coculture of the two cell populations in a serum-free, growth factor-free environment.

"Understanding the Interaction between Promoters in Proximity"

Promoters in proximity demonstrate unique properties that may be important in biology and engineering, but how these properties arise remains elusive. To understand this better, we investigate how promoters interact in proximity. 


The Graduate and Post-Doc (GaP) Seminar Series is a weekly event of biotechnology related research presentations by two graduate students or post-docs of IBB and is co-sponsored by BME. 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 at
