The Basic Sciences Division hosts a weekly Current Biology Seminar series where leading-edge researchers are invited from around the world to share their latest scientific breakthroughs. Lectures are typically every Tuesday and are held as virtual events.

Director, Dept. of Embryology
Carnegie Institution for Science
The Zheng Lab has a long-standing interest in cell division and cytoskeleton. In recent years, their findings have broadened their research using animal models to include the study of stem cells, genome organization, and lineage specification—how stem cells differentiate into their final cell forms.
Seminar Title: “Cell and molecular biology in different contexts”
