Teaching Physiology On-The-Fly: A Faculty Development Program for Clinical Teachers 2019 is organized by MDI Biological Laboratory (MDIBL) and will be held from Sep 15 - 20, 2019 at Bar Harbor, Maine, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 29 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. Conference 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.

Principles and Techniques for Improving Preclinical Translation in Alzheimer's Disease is organized by The Jackson Laboratory and will be held from Oct 06 - 12, 2019 at The Highseas Conference Center, Bar Harbor, Maine, United States of America. Description: The Jackson Laboratory invite you to join them for an immersion workshop focusing on the improvement of preclinical translation in Alzheimer’s Disease research. This workshop will leverage the expertise and facilities of the Indiana University (IU)/JAX Model Organism Development for Evaluation of Late Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (MODEL-AD) Precision Medicine consortium. They aim to address training gaps in preclinical drug screening by providing you with the skills and knowledge required for rigorous design, execution, analysis, and reporting of pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamics, and preclinical efficacy experiments. Additionally, we will focus on the selection and appropriate use of mouse models in translational research. Through this workshop, you will experience a significant amount of hands-on, practical laboratory training in in vivo drug screening. They also strive to support you in your research project and career advancement through networking with experts and peers to promote collaborative research. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Oct 20 - 26, 2019 | USD $1000 | Bar Harbor, Maine
Systems Genetics of Metabolic Disease: A Team Science Approach is organized by The Jackson Laboratory and will be held from Oct 20 - 26, 2019 at The Highseas Conference Center, Bar Harbor, Maine, United States of America. Description: One of our most enduring research questions asks how genetic and environmental factors influence complex diseases such as metabolic disease. Novel approaches to this question employ high-throughput data and statistical methods to model disease processes, together with a holistic view of organisms as complex systems. A “systems genetics” approach requires the coordinated efforts of scientists from diverse disciplines, bringing together insights, information, and skills that are not available within separate disciplines. A team science approach is a feature of systems genetics, and can address research questions in metabolic disease in ways that have not yet been realized. Team science doesn’t happen by accident. This course will train researchers in the “soft skills” needed to manage conflict and communicate in collaborative research teams, while using metabolic disease research as a platform for team science. Participants will form research teams around shared interest in a research problem, and will interrogate this problem throughout the course with the support of course faculty, and daily lectures and dry labs. Learning goals: Following the course, participants will be able to: • Describe features and unsolved problems of metabolic disease • Apply quantitative trait (QTL) mapping methods to genetic and phenotypic data, including RNA and protein sequence data • Apply causal analysis (mediation analysis) to QTL analysis results • Apply negotiation strategies when faced with interpersonal conflicts such as authorship • Lead a well-organized team meeting with an agenda, goals, and purpose • Describe roles of each team member and the interdependencies between these roles • Describe the team project with a shared mental model Prerequisites: • Basic fluency in the R statistical programming language • Knowledge of Mendelian genetics Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
