Online registration for the 7th Annual NHLBI Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium (PCBC) Meeting in Houston, TX (Tuesday, October 13, 2015, and Wednesday October 14, 2015), is now open. We require a picture of you and a brief description of your work for registration. These will be placed in the electronic meeting booklet on the PCBC website so colleagues with similar interests can identify you. You may use your picture or text from your Hub Site webpage.
“Fellows Only Session” will be held on Monday, October 12, 2015, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
The NHLBI Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium is offering a hands-on workshop entitled, "CRISPR/Cas9 Genome Engineering for Human Progenitor Cell Biology and Translation", from Tuesday, September 8th to Friday, September 11th, 2015, at the Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine (CRSM), UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas.
Leonard Zon, MD, Grousbeck Professor of Pediatric Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Investigator at Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Director of the Stem Cell Program, Children’s Hospital Boston, and colleagues have developed a novel competitive marrow transplantation system in adult zebrafish in which engraftment is measured by in vivo fluorescence imaging of the kidney — the adult haematopoietic site.
To provide the PCBC with a mechanism to quickly award small grants to junior faculty (less than 5 years from their appointment to Assistant Professor) research associates, fellows, postdocs, and graduate students to support a well-defined specific aim. The aim should involve at least one of the following, with priority given to proposals that incorporate two:
Jonathan Epstein, MD, chair of the Cell and Developmental Biology Department, Ed Morrisey, PhD, the scientific director of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine, and other colleagues from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, of PCBC Hub Site 14 have identified a specialized progenitor population that is committed exclusively to forming cardiomyoc
You are invited to submit abstracts for presentation at the 7th Annual PCBC meeting to be held at the Houston Methodist Research Institute (HMRI) in Houston, Texas, October 13-14, 2015. A Fellows-Only Session will be held on October 12, 2015.
