Introduction to Effective Medical Writing

Berlin, GermanyIntroduction to Effective Medical Writing https://www.cfpie.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductID=241 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-effective-medical-writing Medical writing is both a science and an art. The art of medical writing is to comprehend and present scientific information clearly to suit the specific target audience's level of understanding including patients, the general public, physicians and/or regulatory agencies. Often it is not poor science that kills a scientific paper; rather, it is the lack of clarity and continuity. Poor writing can be very costly to companies and frequently slows the review process of regulatory submissions. In this 2-day course, you will learn about the different types of medical writing and how to write effectively. We will examine various types of writing including abstracts, regulatory documents, and patient education materials. We will also consider ethical issues that face medical writers. You will gain insight into the design of effective documents and what goes into putting together a compelling manuscript. You will also learn how to keep your writing free of medical jargon and common grammatical errors, while ensuring the scientific integrity of your work. 2017-09-25 09:00:00 UTC 2017-09-26 05:00:00 UTC The Center for Professional Innovation & Education Mohrenstraße 30, 30, Mohrenstraße, Berlin, Germany Mohrenstraße 30, 30, Mohrenstraße Berlin Germany The Center for Professional Innovation & Education email@example.com The Center for Professional Innovation & Education PharmaceuticalMedical Device 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Medical WritingRegulatorySubmissions

Multiple Sequence Alignment with Jalview and Protein Structure and Function Modelling
14 - 15 May 2018
Liverpool, United KingdomMultiple Sequence Alignment with Jalview and Protein Structure and Function Modelling http://www.jalview.org/training/training-courses/Multiple-Sequence-Alignment-with-Jalview-and-Protein-Structure-and https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/multiple-sequence-alignment-with-jalview-and-protein-structure-and-function Date: Monday 14th to Tuesday 15th May 2018 Time: 9.00 to 17.00 Location: MSTC, Sherrington Building, University of Liverpool, L69 3BX Overview This two day hands-on training course is aimed at students and researchers who want to gain practical understanding of the tools and approaches for protein sequence, structure and function prediction and analysis. In day 1, participants will be introduced to Jalview - a free desktop application for the visualisation and comparative analysis of protein, DNA and RNA sequences. Jalview can integrate data from Ensembl, Uniprot, PDBe, Rfam and Pfam, and can access a range of tools for multiple sequence alignment, conservation analysis and secondary structure and disorder prediction, including the widely used JPred4. On the second day, participants will learn to use Jalview’s 3D structure visualisation capabilities in conjunction with UCSF Chimera, and take a whistle-stop tour of the methodologies and tools for prediction and analysis of Protein 3D structure and function. Participants are encouraged to bring their own protein analysis problems and time will be reserved at the end of day 2 for discussion.
