The Center for Computational, Evolutionary and Human Genomics (CEHG) is proud to present the 2015 Genetics and Society Symposium (GSS15). The first day, Monday, April 13th, will include presentations from guest speakers and CEHG faculty, a poster session, and an evening reception. The second event day, Tuesday, April 14th, will feature morning workshops for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars as well as additional presentations from guest speakers and CEHG affiliates.
The goals of the Symposium are:
- To highlight the groundbreaking research done in CEHG-affiliated labs across Stanford campus.
- To enable invaluable interactions between CEHG fellows, faculty, students, and guest speakers.
- To facilitate discussion and exploration of key topics surrounding the intersections of genetics and society.
- To provide graduate students and postdoctoral scholars with an opportunity to receive feedback from peers and faculty advisors on their innovative research.
In support of the Center’s emphasis on teaching and collaboration, we are hosting (at least) two workshops Tuesday morning. Information on additional workshops will be made available (on Eventbrite) as soon as possible. Here are the two workshops confirmed so far that you can register for right away. Please register as soon as possible because space is limited.
- “Science writing for non-science readers” presented by Thomas Hayden
- “Contemporary problems in statistical genetics” presented by Chiara Sabatti and Kenneth Lange
The CEHG Symposium is limited to 200 attendees. Attendance is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is quickly filling up and we anticipate selling out in advance of the event. To secure your spot, please register today. People who register after the spaces have been filled will be waitlisted and contacted as spaces become available.
The Symposium is free and open to all Stanford University affiliates, but registration is required. Non-Stanford affiliates are also welcome to register and attend, for a fee of $150.
