4th OIBC Anne McLaren Memorial Lecture: Stem cells for organ repair

All welcome, staff, students and public

Tea will be served from 5 pm. Admission free.

Dr Anne McLaren, DBE, Hon DSc, FRS (1927-2007) was a Trustee of the Oxford International Biomedical Centre. Her distinction as an experimental scientist in the field of mammalian embryology was matched by her concern for the ethical and legal consequences of in vivo fertilisation (IVF) and other clinical advances in human embryology

Prof Martin Birchall (Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital, University College London). In 2008 Professor Birchall co-led the European Team which successfully performed the world’s first stem-cell based, tissue-engineered organ transplant, opening up new vistas for organ replacement in years to come. He is the first ENT surgeon to be elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences
