Headliners, a new series of lectures featuring University experts discussing today's most pressing issues, will feature University stem cell researcher Meri Firpo discussing the future of stem cell research next Thursday, December 7, at 7 pm in the Continuing Education and Conference Center on the St. Paul Campus.
