StemCellTalks 2020 Breakout Leader Recruitment

Feb 21, 2020
StemCell Talks 2020Dear Graduate Students,

As you may know, stem cells were discovered in 1961 right here in the city of accident (researchers Dr. James Till & Dr. Ernest McCulloch). This achievement is close to home for many and our role in the scientific community is to educate the general public about the exciting potential of stem cells and inspire the next generation of scientists.

We are putting together a team for the upcoming StemCellTalks 2020 ( event on February 21st, 2020 at the University of Toronto and are looking for graduate students to help out on the day. The event, funded by Let’s Talk Science aims to educate high school students (grades 11-12) about stem cells, by highlighting their importance for modern-day medicine and discusses the ethical dilemmas associated with stem cell science. We have some of the top stem cell scientists in our community attending so it’s a great learning experience for everyone that attends.

If you are knowledgeable in stem cell science and are free between 8.30am-4pm, we would like you to volunteer! Your main role would be to guide groups of high school students throughout the activities and answer any questions, both scientific and not. Please email Anthony ( or Will ( for more information. We will then send you a google form with some questions to see if you fit the role.

We look forward to hearing from you!
