STEP Session on Stem Cells

The staff training in extramural programs (STEP) presents "Stem Cells: Nature's Repair Shop," a Science for All session on Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2000, in Wilson Hall, Bldg. 1, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. The featured speakers planned are: Dr. Lana Skirboll, NIH associate director for science policy, and Dr. Eric Meslin, executive director of the National Bioethics Advisory Commission.

It's hard to pick up a newspaper today without seeing a headline about stem cells. What are they? Why are they causing so much interest and controversy? Why are scientists excited about them and ethicists concerned? Attendees at this STEP Science for All will learn the latest developments and the profound biomedical implications of stem cell research as well as the challenging ethical controversies.

All NIH employees are invited to attend. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Inform the STEP office about any need for sign language interpretation or reasonable accommodation by Jan. 6. For more information call 435-2769.
