A virtual presentation on “How COVID-19 Pandemic Changes Medical Research, Teaching and Patient Care” will be held on March 20, 2021 as part of the 2021 Demystifying Medicine Series.
The 2021 Demystifying Medicine Series, which is jointly sponsored by FAES and NIH, will begin January 12 and includes the presentation of patients, pathology, diagnosis and therapy in the context of major disease problems and current research. Primarily directed toward Ph.D. students, clinicians and program managers, the course is designed to help bridge the gap between advances in biology and their application to major human diseases. Each session includes clinical and basic science components presented by NIH staff and invitees. All students, fellows and staff are welcome, as well.
