Today: Stem cells and their potential

 

Stem cells hold a promise of "enormous potential" for healing, says Dr. Jill Helms, a surgery professor and stem cell researcher at Stanford University hospital, who will speak at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 10, at SRI International in Menlo Park as part of the Cafe Scientifique program.

"At the end," she said, "I hope the audience will understand why stem cell biologists think that regenerative medicine may well be the most important scientific advancement of our lifetimes."

Cafe Scientifique is monthly meeting where the public can explore and debate scientific and technological issues in a non-academic setting.

The program runs for 90 minutes.

Doors open at 5:15 p.m. at the headquarters of SRI Menlo Park in the International Building at Middlefield Road and Ringwood Ave. Doors close when the room reaches capacity.
