Join us for the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibition, which makes a beautiful case for the importance of data visualization.
The Places & Spaces exhibition showcases the visualization of complex data in innovative and beautiful formats, using groundbreaking methods for making sense of large streams of data. Each year new visualizations are added, culled from international and interdisciplinary submissions. Four new macroscopes have been chosen to travel with the exhibition, and will make their debut at Vanderbilt University.
These four macroscopes use data that varies tremendously in terms of subject matter and method of collection: city smells found on social media, a library collection mapped in time and space, institutional partnerships revealed through publications, and ship locations tracked by satellite. However, they all present data visually to make new perspectives possible.
The macroscopes will join the 100 maps of science, sculpture, and hands on activities that currently comprise the exhibition. The exhibition will be on display in the Central Library, Sarratt Student Center, Rand Hall, and the Wond'ry.
The Vanderbilt Chapter of the SNMA is pleased to invite you to the 2017 Health Disparities Week. Every year, the SNMA collaborates with multiple student groups on campus to bring to Vanderbilt a week of events centered on a variety of health disparities topics.

The Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology (VICB) presents Dr. THomas Bernhard, Harvard Medical School, "Getting Bacteria Into Shape: Mechanisms of Cell Wall Assembly and Remodeling"
Key Lecture Points:
· The cell wall is essential for bacterial cell shape and integrity
· The biogenesis of this structure is an important target for antibiotics
· We are only just beginning to understand how cell wall synthase and remodeling proteins are regulated to build the wall
Come and learn about the research being done at Vanderbilt to understand and treat Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia. This is a research forum aimed at informing the general public about groundbreaking Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia research being conducted at Vanderbilt.
Vanderbilt researchers will discuss their groundbreaking studies on Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and Dementia for a general public audience interested in learning about AD and their work. The speakers will include Laura Dugan MD (Dept. of Medicine), Katherine Gifford PsyD (Memory & Alzheimer’s Center), Fiona Harrison PhD (Dept. of Medicine), Angela Jefferson PhD (Memory & Alzheimer’s Center), Craig Lindsley PhD (Center for Neuroscience Drug Discover), Charles Sanders, Ph.D. (Department of Biochemistry), and Paul Newhouse MD (Center for Cognitive Medicine).
Come hear from our senior medical students about their experiences on the interview trail for both diagnostic and interventional radiology. All years are welcome to attend---it's never too early to start getting an idea of how to prepare for applications and interview season. This year is the first time we have students interviewing for spots in integrated IR residencies, so that will be a particular topic of discussion.
We plan to have free food for all attendees, so please RSVP if you plan to attend.
Emergency Medicine Post-Match Meeting
Annual post-match meeting to learn about the application process and the specialty in general.
Considering a career in anesthesiology? Join the Anesthesiology Interest Group for a Q&A with VMS-4 anesthesiology applicants to hear their insights on deciding on a career in anesthesia, building a competitive application, and navigating the application process.
Whether you're a VMS-1/2 exploring anesthesiology among several options or a VMS-3 preparing for the upcoming application cycle, we invite you to come learn more about what anesthesiology involves, whether it's the right fit for you, and what you can do at each stage of medical school to position yourself for success!
Dinner will be provided for all attendees, courtesy of the Department of Anesthesiology and Careers in Medicine.
