Stanford Mini Med School lecture videos posted

This fall, Stanford's Continuing Studies program launched a new offering: Stanford Mini Med School, featuring distinguished faculty, scientists and physicians from the university's School of Medicine.

Lectures from the mini med school are now available online here.

Titled The Dynamics of Human Health, the series began with a close look at DNA, stem cells and microbes and moved from those building blocks of the human body to a more global view of human health, pandemics and the delivery of health care.

In the above video, Jill Helms, PhD, explains terminology used in stem cell research, highlights some of the recent advancements in the field of regenerative medicine and discusses how stem cells can be used for medical treatments.
