Thor spoke at the 70th Annual Meeting of the Society of Reproductive Investigation in Brisbane, Australia, from March 21-25, 2023. He presented our latest studies on stem-cell-based models of human placental development in the Concurrent Mini-Symposium entitled “Studying the Maternal-Fetal Interface Using Stem Cells and Organoids.” Thanks to the organizers for the kind invitation to participate in this fantastic event!
Thor visited the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology at CU Boulder on Thursday, November 17. He gave a seminar on human pluripotent stem cell states and the genetic regulation of human trophoblast stem cells. He also met with faculty in the Department of Biochemistry and the BioFrontiers Institute. Thanks again Justin Brumbaugh for your kind invitation to visit this beautiful campus!
Thor visited Baylor and presented our latest studies on human pluripotency and trophoblast development. A great opportunity to find out about the exciting science happening at BCM Houston and catch up with friends and collaborators!
Celebrating Diwali with Jason Mills, Indira Mysorekar, Margot Williams, Kyle Eagan, Bruno Di Stefano, and Will Hudson:
Visiting Rama Kommagani and his lab:
Catching up with Margot Williams (former postdoc in the LSK Lab at WashU, now an Assistant Professor at Baylor):
The Theunissen Lab attended the 4th Annual Joint Retreat of the Developmental, Regenerative, and Stem Cell Biology (DRSCB) Program, the Department of Developmental Biology, and the Center of Regenerative Medicine at Pere Marquette Lodge (September 6-7, 2022). Our postdocs Shafqat Khan and Rowan Karvas gave poster presentations. Exciting to share our latest work with our colleagues!
Shafqat will present his latest work on naive pluripotency at the Gordon Research Conference “Safeguarding Fertility for the Present and Future”, which is associated with the Gordon Research Seminar on Mammalian Reproduction in Vermont (August 13-19, 2022).
