When developing a drug, biomarker, or treatment approach, how will it actually work in patients, and how will it change the decisions that are made during treatment? Doctors, patients, and other stake holders each have different concerns about the costs/benefits at each stage of a medical treatment, and these concerns are not always effectively met. We focus on these issues in a teaching setting at Brown University (USA) as a lot of the tools for translating research into healthcare are generally relevant to how we do collaborative research.

Skill Pill+: Evolutionary Genomics

Saturday, December 15, 2018 (All day) to Sunday, December 16, 2018 (All day)
C700, Lab 3

After Skill Pill+: Evolutionary Genomics, you will never look at termite gut the same way again. 

Skill Pills+ are special Skill Pills where Japanese students are invited to join. All OISTers are, of course, welcome to join as well.

The teachers will be the Bourguignon Unit.
