SECTION II :: STEM CELLS AND LINEAGE COMMITMENT IN MAMMALIAN DEVELOPMENT
SECTION III :: STEM CELLS IN REPROGRAMMING AND REGENERATION


Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture series introduces into classical and modern concepts of stem cell biology, and will cover a spectrum of model systems ranging from basal animals to the development of organoid systems. The lecture series targets Masters students and PhD students interested in stem cell biology and regeneration, and also offers the opportunity to get deeper insight into the various facets of stem cell biology research in Vienna.
