The UofM will be hosting the Midwest Association of Core Directors (MWACD) Oct 16-18, 2019.

The UofM will be hosting an upcoming conference of the 10TH annual meeting of the Midwest Association of Core Directors (MWACD) to be held October 16 - 18, 2019, TCF Bank Stadium, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN

This meeting will be attended by biomedical research core facility directors, users and administrators from at least 11 states in the Midwest. There will be presentations from leaders of institutional efforts in proteomics, genomics, imaging and administration best practices and decision makers and include speakers from the region on how we can best leverage resources to foster success of current research trends. Cross-core collaborations and technology development will be highlighted with an emphasis on computational approaches for visualization and analysis for researchers of all levels. Scientific presentations, vendors, social events and tours will be part of the activities with keynote presentations from Dr. Michelle Itano from University of North Carolina and Chan Zuckerberg Awardee and our own Dr. Kamil Ugubil from the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research.

I am looking forward to hosting and seeing you all there!
