Summer School Medical Genetics 2016 - From Next-Generation Sequencing to Translational Medicine in Neurological Disease Research
With this Summer School, we focus precisely this multi-disciplinary interface, point out synergistic potential, and cover the entire process from clinical phenotyping, to NGS data analysis, to clinical and genetic follow-ups, to functional validations in model systems, and to finally guide development of therapies and (personalized) clinical applications. A particular focus will be on neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, dystonias, ataxias, and related brain disorders.
The course is tailored towards PhD students and PostDocs working in the fields of biology, neuroscience, biochemistry, experimental medicine, and bioinformatics as well as clinicians, particularly medical doctors at the beginning of their specialization.
Date: 25-27 July 2016
Venue: Tübingen, Germany
The application deadline is May 27 2016.
