Event Navigation

stem cell talks

StemCellTalks is an annual symposium series organized by graduate student volunteers and co-founded & sponsored by Stem Cell Network and Let’s Talk Science to bring exciting discoveries in stem cell biology to Grade 11-12 students. Through this free symposium, students will learn scientific knowledge, technologies and ethics about human tissue regeneration through lectures delivered by the leading scientists all over Canada. Students can also interact with graduate students and specialists during career panel discussion and other activities.

Each year, our events on UBC campus attract more than 200 students and are highly appreciated by past attendees. Due to the pandemic, we are hosting an online event this year together with StemCellTalks Calgary team on May 13th (Thu) 2021.

The theme of this year is “Stem Cells and the Respiratory System”. Living through Covid-19 pandemic, we would like to take the opportunity to talk about interesting science about lung stem cells and how scientists fight against lung damage caused by viral infection or congenital diseases.

As a tradition of our event, we will issue virtual Workbooks with background knowledge and detailed information about every lecture and activity.

During the event, students will audit lectures, get your questions answered at Q&A sessions, watch Demonstration videos and participate in a Kahoot quiz to win prizes! We have limited spots so register soon!
