Scientists have developed a molecular “clock” that could reshape how pediatricians measure and monitor childhood growth and potentially allow for an earlier diagnosis of life-altering development disorders. The research, published this week in PNAS, describes how the addition of chemical tags to DNA over time can potentially be used to screen for developmental differences and health problems in children.
Learn. Engage. Be inspired.
Mini Med School is a health science youth outreach and public education program with a reputation for being “anything but mini.”
Every course curriculum is designed to give a basic understanding of the field while exploring up-to-the-minute research, clinical applications, and social and ethical implications. Attendees have the opportunity to hear from award-winning scientists, interact with health science experts, and participate in hands-on activities.
