Lecture Topic: “Integrating “omics” data to better understand structural birth defects.”
Dr. Aagaard-Tillery and three additional TBD discussants will lead a round table discussion further fleshing out the concept of how we integrate “omics” data to better understand the etiology of birth defects.
In addition to talks presented by the grantees, short talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts, with priority for junior investigators.
