Stem cell presentation next week at Tahoe college

Staff report

The UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center next week will host Dr. Dori Borjesson from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.

“Our pets make our lives better in many ways, but did you know that veterinary clinical trials are being done to inform human health?” officials said in a press release. “Join us for a presentation on how stem cells function to heal tissues in animals and people, with an emphasis on the current veterinary clinical trials using stem cells to treat inflammation and spinal cord injury in small and large companion animals.”

Borjesson is a veterinarian and Professor at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, specializing in regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy.

The program begins at 6 p.m. (happy hour begins at 5:30) Thursday, Jan. 8, at the Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences building on the campus of Sierra Nevada College at 291 Country Club Drive in Incline Village.
