What happens when two great scientists sit down for a one-on-one to talk about their work, their mentors and what motivates them? Yes, you get some great chemistry, but more than that, you get a fascinating look at the people and process behind the identification of stem cells and the first mouse grown in the lab from a single cell.
In March of this year, the first StemCellTalks symposium brought over 130 high school students from the Toronto area together to learn about stem cells. The opening session was this Fireside Chat with stem cell pioneers Janet Rossant, Chief of Research at SickKids Hospital and Jim Till, Senior Scientist at Ontario Cancer Institute.
