This Friday, April 25th, we are celebrating DNA Day, and to kick off the festivities, we are hosting our first Twitter Chat from the Center for Individualized Medicine. Join us as at 12:00pm (Central Standard Time) as we discuss the work that has come about since the Human Genome Project, and how Health Care has changed because of it. We'll also talk about the challenges faced by those working in Individualized Medicine, and where research is taking us for making medicine more personalized.
If this is your first Twitter Chat, we recommend using TweetChat to participate and follow along with the conversation. Below you'll find our questions for the chat, and topics covered.
