The Superpower of STEM Cells – TACNY Junior Café Scientifique @ MOST
Apr 21 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Speaker: Zhen Ma, PhD, Assistant Professor, Samuel and Carol Research Scholar, Department of Biomedical & Chemical Engineering, Syracuse Biomaterials Institute, Syracuse University

Overview: A cell is the minimal unit of life. Your life is made up of all kinds of different cells. Most of these cells have a very specific role. But there is one kind of cells, which can transform into other cells. We call them “Stem Cells”. Their superpower not only helps us understand how life begins, but also heals the injuries and fights the diseases.

Biography: Zhen Ma is an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical & Chemical Engineering at Syracuse University. His research focuses on engineering stem cells to study and treat human heart diseases. He obtained his PhD degree in Bioengineering at Clemson University, and spent four years at Bay Area as a postdoctoral fellow at University of California, Berkeley. He came to Syracuse University in the Fall of 2016, and established his “System Tissue Engineering and Morphogenesis (STEM) Lab” at Syracuse Biomaterials Institute.

Junior Café Scientifique is sponsored by the Technology Alliance of Central New York (TACNY), and usually held on the third Saturday of the month during the school year at the MOST. A light breakfast is provided, and participants must be accompanied by an adult. The event is free, but TACNY asks that you RSVP to jrcafe@tacny.org. After the event, participants are welcome to explore the museum for free.

Earth & Space Hands-on Activities @ MOST
