The Beckman Center provides funding for a variety of seminar series and conferences.
Seminars supported by the Beckman Center fall into two categories: 1) those that provide knowledge and training in the use of advanced research technologies, and 2) those that share the results of interdisciplinary research projects with the entire research community.
Seminars in Advanced Research Technologies
Get the FACS Seminar Series
Get the FACS is held throughout the calendar year and features lecturers from the Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting (FACS) Facility as well as outside institutions. The seminars progress throughout the year from basic flow cytometry topics to more advanced flow cytometry topics. These seminars help to improve the flow cytometry knowledge of the Stanford community.
What's the SCOPE? Seminar Series
What’s the SCOPE? is held every other month and features talks from scientists from the Cell Sciences Imaging Facility (CSIF), as well as guest speakers, with a focus on in-depth presentations of new and existing advanced imaging technologies available in the CSIF. The aim is to increase knowledge of the advanced light and electron microscopy imaging options that are available to Stanford’s research community.
Seminars on Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Topics
Frontiers in Biological Research Seminar Series
Support for the Frontiers in Biological Research Seminar Series spans several basic science departments in the School of Medicine. The series is designed to present and discuss cutting-edge research involving interdisciplinary approaches to bioscience and biotechnology. Leading investigators from Stanford and throughout the world present a broad set of scientific and technical themes related to interdisciplinary approaches to important issues in bioengineering, medicine, and the chemical, physical, and biological sciences.
Cancer Biology Seminar Series
The Cancer Biology Seminar Series is held throughout the academic year and features guest lecturers from Stanford and peer institutions who discuss the molecular, genetic, cellular, and pathobiological aspects of cancer, as well as the current state of clinical diagnosis and treatment of human cancers.
Regenerative Medicine Seminar Series
The Beckman Center, Bio-X, and the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine jointly sponsor the Regenerative Medicine Seminar Series, which meets throughout the academic year. The seminars bring students, post-docs, faculty, and trainees together from diverse fields (including bioengineering, engineering, biological sciences, and the medical school) to hear about and discuss work in progress. The series has been a tremendous help in making the Stanford research community aware of the broad range of research in regenerative medicine on campus.
