Center for Skeletal Research Summer Course

The UCSF CCMBM has a new collaborative partnership with our East Coast colleagues in the Center for Skeletal Research (CSR), a similar Center that serves the greater Boston area and neighboring institutions. As part of this collaboration, trainees affiliated with CCMBM labs were invited to attend the CSR Skeletal Biology Summer Course. This six-week course, taught by experts in skeletal research had weekly meetings to review basic concepts in skeletal biology and skeletal research techniques.

The course is recommended for summer students and new members of CCMBM labs who will benefit from foundational training in skeletal research. All sessions will be presented & recorded through Zoom. Contact [email protected] for questions about these lectures.
