Diamond Jubilee Fellow to Deliver Guest Lecture

Professor Kenneth Lee of Chinese University of Hong Kong and Ministry of Education, Key Laboratory for Regenerative Medicine will deliver a special lecture on Monday 14th July during a visit to the Centre for Human Development, Stem Cells and Regeneration, Southampton.

Professor Lee is an expert in developmental and stem cell biology. He is interested in the application of novel small molecules to reprogramme somatic cells into stem cells and the role of small molecules that specifically direct the differentiation of stem cells. Professor Lee is also known for his work on a gene called BRE in cancer and embryo development.

In his lecture, he will reveal the power of using social media and blogging real-time experiments to expose high profile fraudulent stem cell research. He will also discuss whether open peer review is the revolutionary way forward for publishing research. Students and staff are invited and encouraged to come along to this compelling, interactive presentation and to the reception following the lecture.
