    Stanford Medicine Story Rounds

    Thursday, June 6th, 5:30pm – 6:30pm
    Li Ka Shing Learning and Knowledge Center

    Stanford Medicine Story Rounds are live events featuring true, spoken stories about life as a Stanford doctor: the ups, the downs, and the moments of transcendent joy and meaning. These deeply moving events offer a safe environment in which to share our authentic experiences with colleagues — the kinds of deeply personal stories you wouldn’t hear in the lounge or the lunchroom.

    In this immersive setting, physicians at all stages in their careers and across specialties come together to hear and support one another on a human level. Beyond deepening connections with your colleagues — some of whom you may not otherwise spend time with — you may experience the unique comradery borne from realizing you are not alone in facing certain challenges or feeling powerful emotions that rarely come up in casual workplace chitchat. This is an event for physicians, by physicians, bringing perspectives from others who have experienced some of the same struggles and triumphs you have.

    Like the I Am Human movement, Story Rounds centers around the values of shared humanity, empathy, vulnerability, self-compassion, and recognizing the significance of community and connection. In fact, the theme for the June 6 Story Rounds is “I Am Human.”

    Register today to attend the June 6 Story Rounds, where doors open at Li Ka Shing Learning and Knowledge Center at 5 p.m., storytellers begin at 5:30, and the reception that follows kicks off at 6:30 p.m. The full list of storytellers can be found on the event webpage.

    While we ask you to register in advance, this is a free event, hosted by WellMD & WellPhD and Medicine and the Muse, and attendees are eligible to receive CME credit.

    Active Motif Seminars

    Are you interested in epigenetics research but not sure where to start? Do you need to improve the quality or sensitivity of your epigenetic data?

    The leading epigenetic research company, Active Motif will be hosting 2 FREE seminars on Wednesday, June 5th at Stanford Research Park: 3145 Porter Drive D110, Palo Alto, CA.

    Morning Seminar:
    Designing epigenetics projects using ATAC-Seq, ChIP-Seq, CUT&Tag & CUT&RUN – 10:30am – 11:30am (Coffee and snacks provided)
    In this session, we will delve into the intricacies of various leading techniques used in epigenomic research. Our focus will be on comparing and contrasting four prominent methods: ChIP-seq, CUT&Tag, CUT&RUN, and ATAC-seq. We’ll explore their unique features, comparative advantages, and potential challenges in implementation. Throughout the seminar, we’ll highlight key differences in experimental workflows, data outputs, and biological insights offered by each method. Attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of these techniques, empowering them to make informed decisions in their epigenomic research.

    Lunch Seminar:
    An Universal Spike-In Normalization Strategy for CUT&RUN, CUT&Tag, and ATAC-Seq – 12:00pm – 1:00pm (Lunch provided)
    In this session we will focus on the utility of a universal spike-in strategy for data normalization in three prominent epigenomic profiling methods: CUT&RUN, CUT&Tag, and ATAC-seq. By leveraging spike-in normalization, researchers can effectively account for variations in sample preparation, sequencing depth, and experimental conditions, thereby enhancing the reliability and reproducibility of their data. Join us as we discuss the importance and potential applications of incorporating a universal spike-in for data normalization in epigenomic research.
