MedHack: Tuesday, May 31 from 6-8PM
Viral infection as a trigger for neurological disease: The triggers, the culprits, and the targets.
the word MedHack in gray and blue

Join us for MedHack where physicians and scientists will brainstorm new hypotheses to address a pre-selected "fundamental" problem in medicine. Three scientists will step outside their specific areas of expertise to brainstorm - in real-time - an approach to studying longstanding clinical problems, with feedback and input from an audience of physicians and scientists of all specialties and stages. Together, we hope to identify new ways of addressing old problems.
