Human and Mammalian Genetics and Genomics: The 61st MCKUSICK Short Course #bhshortcourse is organized by The Jackson Laboratory and will be held from Jul 20-31, 2020 at The Jackson Laboratory, 600 Main St, Bar Harbor, ME 04609, United States of America. Course Description: This course is a modern survey of heredity, disease, genetics in experimental animals and humans, and molecular genetics in the diagnosis and treatment of inherited disorders. Offered annually for over 60 years, the ‘Short Course’ is a 2-week program consisting of an immersive set of lectures, workshops, tutorials and demonstrations to understand the breadth of modern human genetics. The faculty includes leaders in contemporary genetics and genomics from Johns Hopkins, The Jackson Laboratory and other institutions around the world. The course covers basic science, clinical and translational aspects of human genetics and genomics, and runs the gamut from gene and variant discovery in Mendelian and complex disease, genome biology, the molecular basis of genetic disease, the use of animal models of human disease to understand pathophysiology, as well as genetic disease treatment and therapy. Afternoon workshops and lectures also cover bioinformatics, population genetics, genome manipulation, mutagenesis and phenotyping. Additionally, there is a medical genetics clinic and a mouse “clinic” that displays the breadth of murine phenotypes and their relationship to human disorders. There is a special emphasis on student-faculty interactions as well as a poster session by participants to discuss their work with their peers and faculty. The faculty and course participants are diverse in terms of expertise, career state, and fields of concentration, creating an enriching experience for all. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Workshop on Techniques in Modeling Human Cancer in Mice is organized by The Jackson Laboratory and will be held from Aug 30 - Sep 06, 2020 at The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine, United States of America. Course Description: This workshop provides training in the use of genetically defined laboratory mice as tools for asking questions about gene function and the role of genetics in the biology of cancer. Lectures will be given in the morning by world-renowned scientists, followed by intensive hands-on laboratory sessions. Didactic lectures will reflect current knowledge of modeling cancer in a variety of organ sites and will emphasize common themes in cancer research and modeling. During the hands-on laboratory sessions, participants will develop skills in cancer model manipulations and surgical techniques that they will be able to apply to their own research. The techniques learned are broadly applicable to many cancer types, such as brain, breast, colon, leukemia/lymphoma, and prostate cancer. Participants completing the course will acquire a practical knowledge of how to characterize and analyze specific mouse cancer models. During this workshop, participants have the opportunity to present their work (or proposed work) and receive constructive and encouraging feedback from course faculty. While not a requirement, participants are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this offer and bring a 10 minute PowerPoint presentation. Presentations have the added benefit of promoting dialogue and potential collaborative opportunities among fellow participants and faculty. This workshop can be used for continuing education units for AALAS re-certification. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Teaching Physiology On-The-Fly: A Faculty Development Program for Clinical Teachers 2020 is organized by MDI Biological Laboratory (MDIBL) and will be held from Sep 20 - 25, 2020 at MDI Biological Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 23 Continuing Medical Education Credits. Target Audience: Educators in Hospital Medicine, General Medicine, Emergency Medicine, and any other physicians who are interested in incorporating physiology based teaching into clinical practice Faculty development will be integrated throughout the course in order to enhance participants’ ability to translate new knowledge into effective teaching. Course Description: A hands-on comparative physiology-based faculty development program aimed to equip clinician educators with the confidence and ability to integrate physiology and mechanistic thinking into their daily clinical teaching and medical decision making. Participants will conduct actual comparative physiology experiments using aquatic species, designed to enhance understanding of basic physiologic principles in humans. These experiences will be used as a springboard to create teaching scripts that participants can employ in clinical practice. The goal is for participants to develop a renewed confidence in, and take home tangible products for incorporating physiology into clinical teaching. Goals: • To inspire clinician educators to teach physiology on the wards and incorporate mechanistic thinking into their clinical decision making. • To give clinician educators the time and the space to re-familiarize themselves with basic concepts of physiology applicable to the internal medicine wards using hands on comparative physiology experiments. • To give clinician educators durable tools and resources so that they are able to locate and review the physiology and mechanisms of disease processes in their ongoing clinical and teaching roles. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
