Visiting Professor Lecture Video Series
The Taubman Institute collaborates with other University of Michigan Medical School departments to invite distinguished thought leaders in medical research to speak on the U-M campus in Ann Arbor. These Visiting Professor Lectures are generally held monthly and represent the Taubman Institute's ongoing commitment to furthering translational medical research by creating opportunities for the most talented physician-researchers to exchange knowledge and ideas.
Now, we’ve instituted a video series so that outreach can extend to the lay and scientific communities beyond Ann Arbor. In each video, the U-M host faculty member interviews the visiting professor about the highlights of his or her talk.
Dr. Joshua Hare of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine discusses the clinical trial of a stem cell therapy for people whose heart tissue has been scarred.
Dr. David Kirsch of Duke University Medical College discusses the use of mouse models to study the effects of radiation therapy for cancer.
Dr. A. Gordon Smith of the University of Utah School of Medicine discusses new research and treatment models for the study of diabetic neuropathy.
