October 23 - November 13th 2009
During the past few weeks, I have been busy completing annotated bibliographies and further researching the signals used in preparing stem cells for regeneration. I also have continuously kept in touch with Dr. Marban, who recently emailed me with information that I may have a mentor within two weeks, after she attends a major conference for the American Heart Association. As of now, I have completed a a powerpoint presentation for my project and have it posted on this site. This week we have spent most of our time presenting powerpoints and practicing speeches, which I will complete on Monday. I am continualy building my knowledge base with cellular biology and am in currently reading a 23 page reseach paper on cellular regeneration and signal analysis( Wnt mostly); background information is also included.
