Twice a year, UniStem invites the most prestigious international researchers to give lectures on the most current topics.
A key focus of Prof. Brüstle research is the derivation of defined neurons and glia from pluripotent embryonic stem cells (ES cells). The group explore the potential of these cells to integrate into the nervous system and to contribute to functional repair.
Prof. Björklund’s research has been concerned with reparative and neuroprotective mechanisms in the CNS using cell replacement and gene transfer techniques.
Christine Mummery is Professor of Developmental Biology and Head of the Department of Anatomy and Embryology. Most of her research focuses on using mouse embryonic stem cells and embryos to study growth and differentiation in early development
