NIH Demystifying Medicine 2018



  • “The whole idea of training Ph.D.'s about disease is so they can communicate with clinicians. The demystifying medicine course is about 'building bridges' between the basic scientists and the clinicians, and bringing in patients puts a human face on the disease.”

    - Irwin Arias

    The NIH Catalyst



The Demystifying Medicine Lecture Series at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is designed to help bridge the gap between advances in biology and their applications to major human diseases. The lectures include presentations of patients, pathology, diagnosis and therapy in the context of major diseases and current research.

The 2018 Demystifying Medicine Series was sponsored jointly by the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES) and the NIH.
