Dr. Eva Feldman to headline fall Health Science Lecture

Dr. Eva Feldman will headline the fall Health Science Lecture on Wednesday, Oct. 2, with an update on her landmark trial of a stem cell therapy for ALS.  The trial, in which patients receive the surgical implantation of stem cells directly to their spinal cords, is expected to move into Phase 2 this fall in Ann Arbor.

The lecture takes place from 6-7 p.m.  in the Kahn Auditorium of the A. Alfred Taubman Biomedical Science Research Building on the University of Michigan campus.  It is open to the general public; no registration is required.  Click here for directions.

The Health Science Lecture Series is sponsored by the Taubman Institute, the Program for Biology and a number of student organizations. The lectures will be held quarterly on the U-M campus and will focus on a wide variety of topics including medical research, public health, bioethics, evolutionary biology, epidemiology and many others.
