The course provides a very useful forum for researchers to get ideas and advice and to benefit from expertise drawn from all five of MMI’s partner institutions: UCD TCD RCSI UCC and NUI Galway.
Industry representatives from Roche Integrated DNA Technologies Lennox and Brennan & Co were also in attendance.
The course gives an overview of technologies and methods in biomedical research and their applications. These range from the means to interrogate genomes and their expression how we can examine molecular interactions and how we determine the cellular factors and environmental cues that impact on development and metabolism. Throughout the course there is a focus on translation to therapies.
