Golden Helix to Award Scholarship for Harvard FBAT-PBAT Short Course
Golden Helix, Inc., the global leader in genetic association software, announced that it will award a scholarship to one course participant to the upcoming FBAT-PBAT Short Course to be held June 2-3, 2008 at the Harvard School of Public Health. The scholarship is intended to help cover the travel expenses and course registration fee for a participant who would not otherwise attend due to financial limitations.
FBAT-PBAT Short Course
The FBAT-PBAT Short Course is typically offered twice a year and has previously been held at the Harvard School of Public Health, the University of Colorado, and the University of Ghent. The course focuses on family-based designs for genetic association studies; these designs use information on affected individuals and their relatives, most commonly parents and/or siblings. The organizers for this year’s course will be Dr. Nan Laird and Dr. Christoph Lange of the Department of Biostatistics, Harvard School of Public Health.
