UI to host clinical and translational science researchers June 8-9
The University of Iowa Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (ICTS) will host faculty, scholars and program leaders from regional institutions involved in clinical and translational science on Monday and Tuesday, June 8-9, during the Fourth Annual Upper Midwest Consortium Meeting.
The meeting will be an opportunity to identify areas of potential scientific collaboration and sharing of research and mentoring resources across institutions, according to Gary Hunninghake, M.D., UI professor of internal medicine and director of the ICTS.
Investigators participating in the meeting, which will be held at the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Coralville, represent the Midwest's leading clinical and translational research institutions, Hunninghake said.
Selected presentations from the first day of the conference will be webcast live, including the keynote address by Geoff McLennan, M.B., Ph.D., UI professor of internal medicine, radiology, and biomedical engineering, who will speak on "Personalized Medicine through Multi-Scale Pulmonary Imaging."
Other presentations will be taped and posted online for later viewing.
