STEMREM 201A: Stem Cells and Human Development: From Embryo to Cell Lineage Determination

For graduate, medical, and advanced undergraduate students. Prepares students for the future of regenerative medicine by exploring central concepts in stem cell biology and the actual experiments that led to these concepts. Provides educational foundation for future physician-scientists to understand mechanisms underlying regenerative therapies. The latest advances in stem cell research will be discussed, including tissue regeneration; how stem cells are discovered by lineage tracing or transplantation; how stem cells differentiate and form organized tissues; stem cell niches; signaling centers and extracellular signals; chromatin and cellular reprogramming; organoids; and cancer stem cells, with emphasis on unresolved issues in the field.
