Exploring Frontiers: Predicting Biology Webinar

October 6, 2021

Event Navigation

Model systems have been used to successfully pioneer foundational research, leading not only to an advanced understanding of biological systems but also to translational breakthroughs. However, only a portion of scientific results seen in mice are mirrored in humans. How can we better infer which observations will hold true in both systems?

Join us as we highlight innovative approaches addressing this frontier challenge. The webinar will include speaker presentations and a lively panel discussion on the challenges, opportunities and next steps needed to move the needle in modeling mouse to human inference. See below for the agenda and speaker information.
