The primary goal of the Stem Cell course is to give an overview of the emerging field of stem cell and regenerative medicine, with an emphasis on human embryonic stem cells (hESC) for graduate students so that they can decide if this will be a field of interest for their graduate studies and, if so, which facet they wish to focus on. Several investigators from the University of Washington and the greater Seattle area will present overviews of their interests and how this integrates within the greater picture of stem cells and regenerative medicine. The students who wish to receive credit for this course will present an abstract of proposed research in the field to the class. This will be open to discussion within the class on the final meeting and will be graded for the understanding of the body of work it encompasses.
