Teaching the Genome Generation™ is a one-week professional development short course for STEM teachers.
The course emphasizes the advantages of each model system for addressing mechanisms relevant to the biology of human aging and regeneration pathways. In addition to basic principles of aging and regeneration, participants will hear about potential therapeutic applications of senolytics and parabiosis and engage in hypothesis-driven research to assess physiological consequences of timing anti-aging and pro-regenerative strategies during healing. The course will take place in our new Center for Biomedical Innovation training facility on the MDI Biological Laboratory campus. Course participants will attend the associated Aging and Stem Cell Symposium at no extra charge. Tuition: $4500 (academic and non-profit institutions), $7500 for those in commercial enterprise. Tuition Includes: All course material, laboratory supplies, double occupancy housing and meals. Single occupancy, if available, can be purchased for an additional fee.
This is a four-day, professional development course geared towards senior graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, which will help you expand your professional skills and embark on fulfilling scientific career.
This course includes daily lectures in the mornings and evenings as well as afternoon mini-symposia, workshops, tutorials, demonstrations and a poster session. There is special emphasis on student-faculty interaction. The faculty is diverse in terms of disciplines and the students in terms of stage of career and fields of concentration. This diversity makes for an enriching experience for all. Although the course schedule is quite full, there is time set aside to enjoy the natural beauty of Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park.
The Cancer Short Course provides a broad survey of the cancer research and experimental modeling from systems and computational genetics, to the tumor microenvironment and tumor progression, to inflammation and immunotherapy.
