Whether you plan to spend the weekend wallowing in work, or canoodling on the couch (Happy Valentine's Day!), you can follow Stanford Medicine researchers at the AAAS Annual Meeting, a gathering of thousands of scientists that will be held this weekend in San Jose.
Kicking off Friday (the conference officially began today), we'll be live tweeting from the panel discussion "Informatics and Bioimaging: New Ways to Better Medicines," featuring Stanford bioengineer Russ Altman, MD, PhD, from 10 to 11:30 `a.m.
Take a break for lunch, then check in to hear Steve Goodman, MD, PhD, Stanford's associate dean of clinical and translational research, discussing "Responsible Data-Sharing for Clinical Trials" from 3 to 4:30 p.m.
Early Saturday, join Christopher Scott, PhD, director of the Stanford University Program on Stem Cells in in Society, as he addresses "Challenges in Communicating about Stem Cells" from 8 to 9:30 a.m.
We'll sprinkle in other tweets throughout the weekend, and we'll follow-up with a series of blog posts about the various talks. You can follow the tweets on the @StanfordMed feed or by using the hashtag #AAASmtg.
