The HHMI/VUMC Certificate Program in Molecular Medicine has developed the “Bench to Bedside” mini-symposium series as a forum to enhance interaction and discussion between the various Vanderbilt graduate and post-doctoral education programs that are promoting clinical enrichment for basic scientists. The format and topics vary at each meeting but in principal focus around a clinical and basic science topic in the context of a particular disease: the next event in the series is scheduled for September 23rd from 5:00 to 7:30 pm in room 512 Light Hall and is open to all interested graduate students and postdocs.
This minisymposium is being organized by Drs. Dan Moore and Bill Russell and will focus on Type 1 Diabetes.This will be an interactive and relatively informal meeting in which clinical, and basic science aspects of this disease are discussed. Since we may have patients present, please dress appropriately (no open shirts, torn jeans etc.).
