Teaching the Genome Generation™ is a one-week professional development short course for STEM teachers.
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.
Students will leave the course able to design and interpret genetic and genomic studies of addiction as they relate to their specific research question, and will be able to use current bioinformatics resources to identify research resources and make use of public data sources in their own research.
