2012 Women in Science series features stem cell researcher
June 04, 2012 College News - The Medical College of Wisconsin’s 6th annual Women in Science series will feature Michele Battle, PhD, a stem cell researcher and Assistant Professor of Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy, at the June 21 luncheon presentation at the Woman’s Club in Milwaukee. This presentation is geared for the lay public.
Dr. Battle will discuss recent scientific advances that make it possible to transform human stem cells into organ-specific cell types. She is using government-approved stem cells in her laboratory to study the formation of the gastrointestinal tract. The ultimate goal of her research is to discover stem cell-based therapies to restore the function of diseased or damaged organs.

Series subscriptions are available for a suggested minimum donation of $250, which includes five presentations, and also supports two annual awards for promising women scientists.
