Seminar Series

The Institute for Reproductive Health and Regenerative Medicine Seminar Series

Established in Spring 2005 as the Research Seminar Series in Cancer and Developmental Biology, this seminar program's research emphasis and focus has evolved over time into developmental and regenerative biology.  The seminars are held at 8:30 am on Thursdays and are sponsored in part by the Peter T. Bohan Fund at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
