WVIZ ideastream and NOTA in collaboration with the Great Lakes Science Center, and the Cleveland Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative present the BioMedTech: Students Translating and Exploring Medicine 2012 Distance Learning Program Series.
This four-part series engages students (grades 7-12) in exploring how diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease (DOC) discoveries go from the bench (the laboratory) to the bedside (patient care at the doctor’s office or hospital). Learn how local medical researchers and experts use laboratory, clinical, population, and community research to advance prevention strategies and treatments for DOC.
This program is FREE to all participating schools through a Science Education Partnership Award with the National Center for Research Resources, a division of the National Institute of Health.
