Intro:

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.

Guest:

Dr. Chuck Murry is a Professor of Laboratory Medicine & Pathology, Bioengineering, and Medicine & Cardiology at the University of Washington, as well as Director of the Institute for Stem Cell Regenerative Medicine and the UW Medicine Heart Regeneration Program and Co-Director of the UW Center for Cardiovascular Biology. His research focuses on stem cell biology, with an emphasis on understanding the differentiation of the human cardiovascular system and using these cells to study disease and regenerate damaged tissues.

We discuss his talk at the Presidential Symposium and his thoughts on the meeting.
