    March 21, 2012, we will join over 25 of San Diego's leading science organizations who open their doors to our guests from all across San Diego County. The three hour event will feature hands-on interactive encounters with some of the most cutting edge science, engineering and technology going on at the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine.
    Location: the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine, 1st floor
    2880 Torrey Pines Scenic Drive
    La Jolla, CA 92037
    Time: 3- 6 pm, Wednesday, March 21, 2012
    Free admission, FREE PARKING
    -This is a public scientific-outreach event (fun), not a scholarly exchange. All are welcome.
    -The event offers you the opportunity to meet some of the researchers and scientists working in the Sanford Consortium.  Please join me in supporting their efforts.  Drop in and see us between 3-6 pm.  Introduce yourself, and see the creative ways they are bringing to the public knowledge of our excellent work.

  • NWiS Coffee Hour- Impostor Syndrome
    Ever worry that you are not as smart/capable as those around you?  Think you obtained your scientific position by fluke and fear the day when you will be exposed as a fraud? You are not alone! Studies have shown that the "Impostor Syndrome" is common among those in scientific careers.
    Please join us for a coffee hour discussion of "No, You're Not an Impostor", an article from Science Magazine http://sciencecareers.sciencemag.org/career_magazine/previous_issues/articles/2008_02_15/caredit.a0800025.
    You will find that the "Impostor Syndrome" is common among scientists at all professional levels, and you will learn ways to overcome this sometimes debilitating fear so that you can make the most of your scientific talents.
    Discussion Leaders:  Ryan Wheeler, TSRI Career & Postdoctoral Services
                                        and Daphne Laurie, TSRI Counseling Services
    When and Where: Monday, March 5 @ 3 PM in the TSRI Faculty Club Tennis Room
    Coffee and Snacks provided!
    As always, our male colleagues are encouraged to attend. We hope to see you there!

    RE: Connie J. Eaves
    Seminar on Thursday, February 9, 2012 in CNCB Large Auditorium at 4PM

    Dr. Connie Eaves is well known for her exciting and pioneering work in basic stem cell biology. The core of her research has focused on hematopoietic stem cells and how intrinsic and extrinsic factors regulate their self-renewal and differentiation. Her studies have provided important insights into leukemogenesis and have led to breakthroughs in the treatment of leukemia. Dr. Eaves’ laboratory has also made seminal contributions to our understanding of mammary epithelial stem cells. Through elegant cell sorting studies she showed that individual cells have the capacity to regenerate an entire mammary gland. In addition to these studies on adult stem cell populations, she has been active in the embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cell field and is using these cells to derive hematopoietic stem cells in a dish. During her productive scientific career she has received numerous prestigious awards and scholarships and has been elected a fellow to the Royal Society of Canada.
