Science Behind the Medicine and Medical Advances  

We will explore the discoveries of Vanderbilt's biomedical and engineering labs. Some of these discoveries we may see in our doctors' offices very soon. Experts will dispel scientific myths and explain how real-world medical issues get distorted and misunderstood. Lectures will be divided into two sections, focusing on the "Science Behind the Medicine" and "Medical Advances". Examples of some "Science Behind the Medicine" topics include Cancer Research and Genomics, The Story Behind the Meningitis Scare, Neurosurgery for Psychiatric Disorders, and What We Now Know about Autism. "Medical Advances" topics include Heredity Cancers, Healthy Sleep and Sleep Disorders of the Aging, What’s Next in the World of Organ Transplantation, and more!
