In June 2021, we attended the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) virtual annual meeting, and recorded daily video episodes discussing highlights of the previous 24 hours. Here is the first of five special episodes from the meeting featuring Dr. Chuck Murry from the University of Washington, who presented during the Presidential Symposium: What’s in a Germ Layer session on the first day of the meeting.
Dr. Martin Pera is a Principal Investigator at the Jackson Laboratories and Editor-in-Chief of the ISSCR’s journal Stem Cell Reports. His lab studies the regulation of self-renewal and pluripotency, heterogeneity in pluripotent stem cell populations, and neural specification of pluripotent stem cells.
Dr. Madeline Lancaster is a Group Leader at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK. The Lancaster lab has developed cerebral organoids as a model system to better understand human brain evolution, development, and neurodevelopmental disorders. She joined us to discuss her research presentated at the ISSCR 2020 conference.
