The Center for Genetics and Complex Traits (CGACT) of the University of Pennsylvania will host a one-day conference on Genetic Epidemiology and Statistics: Methods and Applications in the Next Generation Sequencing Age, on May 17, 2013 at the Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel.
The 2013 Mid-Atlantic Genetic Epidemiology and Statistics (MAGES) Conference is primarily intended to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scientists from the Mid-Atlantic regions working in the fields of statistical genetics and genetic epidemiology, but is open to participants from everywhere. The forum will provide an opportunity for faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students working in these fields to convene and review new developments in these areas of research. The program will feature three sessions with three invited speakers each and allow ample time for formal as well as informal discussion. The aim is to facilitate exchange of ideas and promote interactions and collaborations among participants.
The 2013 MAGES Conference is sponsored by the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB) of the University of Pennsylvania. Registration is free but is mandatory and will be limited to 150 participants.

For medical students considering a year out, particularly one that would have some global dimensions, Global Health Programs and the Registrar’s Office have been working with Cheryl Shipman, Associate Director for Fellowships at CURF, Center for Undergraduate (and Graduate) Research and Fellowships, http://www.upenn.edu/curf/ to design a brief presentation for you. This will include an introduction to the processes involved in obtaining funding like the Fulbright; Indicorps (for India); Luce (for many countries in Asia); Erasmus (for European Community countries); and Churchill/Gates Cambridge/Thouron (all for graduate studies in the UK).
