Thursday, February 22, 2024---USC TGLA at Keck Hospital

Trojan Candy arrived at Keck Hospital for this month's USC TGLA meeting. It would include a talk by staff and a tour of Keck Hospital's Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research department.

I checked in where one of our Scholars Sophia Perez was volunteering with Kathie Austin and Rosalee Pechersky.
We walked across the street to the Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research Building where we listened to three speakers.
Then we were given a tour of the building and were able to look at specimens with a microscope.
A Ph.D. student showed us his research animal.
