MIT stem cell researcher Laurie Boyer will speak to graduates at Framingham State College, her alma mater, during Sunday's commencement ceremony, the school said today.
Boyer, who graduated from Framingham State in 1990, conducts embryonic stem cell research at MIT's Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, where she is completing a post-doctoral fellowship. In 2006, the journal "Scientific American" named Boyer to its annual list of 50 leading scientific researchers. She lives in Westborough.
Commencement is 2 p.m. Sunday at the Village Green (also known at Framingham Centre Common) on Edgell Road.
