SEMSS 2010

Welcome to the official website of the third annual Southeastern Medical Scientist Symposium, hosted by the Vanderbilt University, University of Alabama at Birmingham, and Emory University Medical Scientist Training Programs in partnership with the American Physician Scientist Association. This year the conference will be held at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.  The SEMSS brings MD/PhD students together from schools around the southeastern United States to encourage a collaborative and interdisciplinary educational environment within the region, while fostering the continuation of institutional ties.



SEMSS 2011

The theme of this year’s conference is personalized medicine. More and more, physicians and scientists are discovering the necessity of tailoring treatments to individuals. For even within the bounds of a single diagnosis or pathophysiology, the response of a disease to our efforts to cure it depends largely on the DNA of the patients themselves. As music functions as an expression of the soul, our DNA serves as an expression of the cell itself; the future of medical science lies not only in understanding that expression, but also integrating it into the myriad of specialties and treatment protocols in the most effective way possible. Please join us this year from November 10th to 11th in Music City, USA as we explore the progress and promise that personalized medicine holds, learn about ongoing research in participating institutions, and meet and reconnect with future colleagues.
