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.
