Annual Fetzer Science Lecture to Address Science, Ethics Behind Stem Cell Research
A leading expert on the science and ethics behind stem cell research will present Nebraska Wesleyan University’s annual Fetzer Science Lecture on February 25.
David Crouse, a professor in the Department of Genetics, Cell Biology and Anatomy and the Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at the University of Nebraska Medical Center will discuss “Stem Cells: 21st Century Scientific and Ethical Perspectives.” The lecture begins at 1 p.m. in O’Donnell Auditorium, located at 50th Street and Huntington Ave.
Dr. Crouse joined UNMC in 1977 as assistant professor in the Department of Anatomy. His own research, funded largely by the National Institutes of Health, has been related to the redevelopment of the immune and blood systems following bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. He has taken a lead role in promoting an understanding of the science and ethics of stem cell research.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
