SAVE THE DATE:  Monday, September 9, 2019!  We have scheduled our fifth annual Cleveland Institute for Computational Biology (CICB) symposium, also known as the North Coast Conference on Precision Medicine.  Like last year, we will be covering the broad topic of return of genomic results, whether in a clinical setting or to research participants, with an emphasis on diverse populations.  Also like last year, we are holding this day event at the Cleveland Botanical Garden.
