    Speaker: Arthur Lander, University of California, Irvine

    Talk Title: Stem cells, lineages and the logic of proliferative control

    Series: Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC Distinguished Speakers Series

    Abstract: Producing organs and tissues of precisely specified sizes is one of the greatest engineering challenges that developing organisms face. Whether achieving homeostasis of continuously-renewing epithelia, or building non-renewing organs such as brain and bone, the key to achieving speed, stability and set-point control is feedback regulation of how cells progress through lineage stages. I will discuss the evidence, both experimental and theoretical, in support of this claim, as well as its implications for how we understand stem cells and the lineages to which they give rise.
