About this series:
This seminar series focuses on presenting novel or emerging technologies to enable T1 translational researchers to advance their studies. These new technologies have tremendous potential to advance our understanding of human health and disease and to inform the development of personalized approaches to disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Coordinated by the University of Chicago Institute for Translational Medicine, these seminars provide valuable and useful tools and information to faculty members, students, and trainees at all levels who are interested in cutting-edge research approaches at the first level of translation (from laboratory findings to clinical practice). University of Chicago faculty experts and guest speakers will describe molecular, cellular, genetic, and biophysical methodologies as well as where to find resources to utilize these up-and-coming techniques (including their advantages and pitfalls).
