Jonah Platt Stem Cell Seminar Series

The monthly Stem Cell Seminar Series brings scientists from all over the world to the forefront of regenerative medicine, and emphasizes the basic research and translational themes of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCSF. These seminars provide an opportunity for the UCSF community to learn about the work being done by prestigious researchers from other institutions, preview unpublished scientific results, initiate collaborations and build networks. The speakers who are invited to the series provide novel insights into stem cell functions, tissue development, and cell-based approaches for the treatment of diseases.


These seminars occur virtually on Zoom during the regular academic season.


This seminar series is currently sponsored by the generous gift from Mr. Jonah Platt.

Research in Progress Seminar Series

The Broad Center in conjunction with other departments and groups, including Cell & Tissue Biology, Microbiology & Immunology, Anatomy, ImmunoX, and the HDFCC, hold a weekly conference to review ongoing research projects across a variety of fields and topics. The goal of the weekly meetings is to showcase a trainee’s current work in their respective labs and offer a valuable opportunity for them to get feedback and share creativity in a collegial space. Broad center trainee’s present on a monthly basis.
