View this newsletter as displayed over email


Welcome to the biweekly electronic newsletter from Stanford Bio-X for members of the Bio-X Corporate Forum. The following are key links to the history of Bio-X and the Clark Center (hub of Bio-X): Bio-X Timeline, CLARK CENTER @ 10X, and President John Hennessy's article calling Bio-X and the Clark Center "A Cauldron of Innovation".


We are pleased to announce a world-class, three-day symposium on Tissue Engineering co-hosted by Stanford Bio-X and University of Sydney ADATE.

Please mark your calendars for September 12-14, 2016, and click on the poster for more information as well as registration!


CELEBRATING THE CLARK CENTER

Unlike traditional research buildings that keep disciplines separate, the Clark Center was intended to inspire chance encounters between residents from a mix of disciplines and allow creative science to flourish.
