At the UW MIDUS Meeting, MIDUS (Midlife in the United States) study researchers learn about progress in new data collection for the current U19 grant as well as hear diverse presentations of new findings coming out of the study.
Invitation required for attendance.
MIDUS Gene Expression Workshop
This workshop is designed to provide instruction to social and behavioral scientists interested in learning about functional genomics methods (e.g., gene expression profiling) in research on psychosocial determinants of health. Topics include general psychobiological concepts, research design and strategy, pragmatics of tissue sampling and sample processing, RNA profiling assays, low-level analysis of differential gene expression, and bioinformatic analyses of cellular and transcription factor mechanisms. The workshop includes interactive clinics in which attendees begin implementing these approaches in their own research programs. The larger conceptual focus is on environmental regulation of expression, with MIDUS RNA data as a primary example.
Application acceptance required for attendance.
