The RTP Chapter of ACRP presents “Auschwitz and The Nuremberg Code” Dec 13, 2010 from 05:30 PM to 07:00 PM Bioinformatics Building, Room 1131,
Join Claudia G. Christy, MSN, RN, CCRC (Nurse Clinician in the Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Division, UNC Chapel Hill, NC) for a special presentation on Monday, December 13, 2010 from 5:30 PM- 7:00 PM in Bioinformatics Building, Room 1131. Even though the Nuremberg code was written over 60 years ago, it’s relevance to human subject protection is as germane today as it was in the aftermath of World War II. This presentation will bring to life the words of the Nuremberg code with a real life focus on Auschwitz survivor Eva Mozez Kor. The Nuremberg code will be reviewed in detail including the background and actual content of the code.

Thursday, December 9, 2010 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Brinkhous-Bullitt Bldg., Room 219 NC TraCS Institute offers monthly educational sessions to provide general information about the NC TraCS Institute, and more specifically about the NC TraCS Pilot Grant Program. If you are planning to apply for an NC TraCS pilot grant, we highly recommend you attend one of these sessions. The next session will take place on December 9th and will include brief presentations by NC TraCS Research Navigators, Regulatory and Biostatistics Core personnel. The session will also include plenty of time for questions from attendees. Please RSVP to Paul Kerr at if you plan to attend. These monthly Pilot Program informational sessions will be held on the second Thursday of each month from 1:00 – 2:00pm in Brinkhous-Bullitt Room 219.
Structural Biology: A High-Tech Tool for Biomedical Research Dec 09, 2010 from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM Brinkhous-Bullitt Building, Room 219,
The Center for Structural Biology presents “Structural Biology: A High-Tech Tool for Biomedical Research”. Structures of macromolecules at atomic resolution have helped to revolutionize modern biology. Such knowledge is often crucial for understanding the functions of biological macromolecules, including their interactions with small ligands (such as substrates, inhibitors, drugs) and other macromolecules (nucleic acids and/or proteins). Consequently, structural biology represents one of the pillars of basic biomedical research; it is indispensable for deciphering the details of life processes and for understanding the differences between natural and diseased states. Building on such insights, structural biology can assist in devising novel therapies, e.g., through structure-based or structure-aided drug design. Join us and see some ways in which structural biology is applied to biomedical research.

NC TraCS Fall 2010 Biostatistics Series Dec 06, 2010 from 12:00 PM to 01:50 PM Bondurant Hall, Room 2020,
Join Joe Ibrahim as he presents, "Introduction to Bayesian Statistics" on December 6th for the last session in 2010. This semester seminar series targets Clinical and Translational Science Investigators who have had basic training in biostatistics methods (e.g., completed Bios 541 and 542) and are interested in learning more about a variety of more advanced topics. Each session will be led by a different member of the NC TraCS Biostatistics Core or other Biostatistics faculty member. Individuals interested in earning 1 credit of BIOS 543 (which requires participation in all sessions) should contact Rosalie Dominik ( for information on course registration. Since topics vary across years, the course may be taken for credit in consecutive years.
