Seminar om stamcelledynamik fra forskellige perspektiver: matematik, medicin, fysik og medicinsk biologi.
Stem cells are capable of maintaining tissue and blood generation in mammals. For example, hematopoietic stem cells play a key role in the production of 100 billion blood cells daily. Hence, control of stem cell function is crucial and disturbances may lead to severe diseases such as several cancers.
This seminar addresses stem cell dynamics from various perspectives: mathematical modelling and analysis, murine animal models, clinical data and in vitro experiments.
We are proud to present a broad range of speakers with backgrounds in mathematics, medicine, physics and medical biology.

9.50- 10.25 Peter Ashcroft (ETH Zürich): Cancer evolution and the dynamics of hematopoietic stem cells
10.45-11.20 Jesper Troelsen (RUC): Intestinal stem cells and differentiation
11.20- 11.55 Thomas Stiehl (Heidelberg University): Stem cell competition in acute leukemias
Talks are 25 minutes with additional 10 minutes for discussion.
Organizers: Morten Andersen and Johnny T. Ottesen
