Stem Cells: Our Window to the World with Brock Reeve, Harvard Stem Cell Institute

November 29, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Please join us for an exciting evening with Brock Reeve, the Director of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute. He’s going to provide unique insights and share some extraordinary developments taking place in stem cell research today.
The Harvard Stem Cell Institute’s overall aim is to use the power of stem cell biology to understand and ultimately treat selected diseases and conditions. The Harvard community, comprising the university, the medical school, and 10 hospitals and research institutions, is the largest single concentration of stem cell researchers in the world.

Brock came to this role from the commercial sector with extensive experience in both management consulting and operations for technology-based companies, with a focus on life sciences. His clients have included some of the leading pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies, and he also has had hands-on operational responsibility in product management and marketing roles in software start-ups. Brock received a BA and MPhil from Yale University and an MBA from Harvard Business School.

Refreshments provided by Helbling (6pm-8pm).

IMPORTANT: Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) is a secured facility, so you will need to check in at the security desk on the first floor. Please bring a photo ID. The CIC can be busy after work with events like these, so we suggest arriving early in case there is a line at the security desk. Your security check-in experience will be faster if your meetup.com account name matches the full name on your ID.

Kendall Square T Stop (Red Line) is across the street from the Cambridge Innovation Center. There are a number of pay parking lots in the area. There is free parking in the MIT Hayward Lot after 5pm
