The Summer School addresses precisely this challenge and covers the entire process from clinical phenotyping, to NGS data analysis, to clinical and genetic follow-ups, to functional validations in model systems, and to finally guide development of therapies and (personalized) clinical applications.
In particular, we will focus on neurological disorders like Parkinson’s disease, dystonias, ataxias, and related brain disorders by analyzing genomic NGS data from patients during hands-on workshops and showing examples of how to translate research findings into the clinic.
The Summer School will take place from 25-27 July 2016 in Tübingen, Germany. It is tailored for PhD students and PostDocs working in the field of biology, neuroscience, biochemistry, experimental medicine, and bioinformatics as well as clinicians, particularly medical doctors at the beginning of their specialization.
