MosaCell 2nd annual meeting


MosaCell is an initiative to support research on patient-derived cells for disease modeling and therapy at the MUMC+. At this second annual symposium the theme is “Meet the Neighbours”. We will have four lectures from scientists in the greater Maastricht region. Similar to last year, we will organize a workshop entitled "Mindmapping MosaCell" and we ask the question: Which science and technology is hidden amongst us? By the end of the day we hope that you will have met your new collaboration partners!

 

Only a limited number of tickets is available so don't wait too long!

 

Date and time:

Tuesday May 15th, 9:30-18:00.
