For NHGRI's National DNA Day inaugural speaker series, Eric P. Spana, Ph.D. from Duke University presented Harry Potter and the Genetics of Wizarding. The event took place on the NIH campus in Building 35A (Porter Building), Room 640. It is now available on NHGRI's YouTube channel, GenomeTV. Dr. Spana is an award-winning instructor in biology who helps students place new information in context with ideas they already find familiar, like Harry Potter, Star Wars and The Avenger.
The HHS Ignite Accelerator program, inspired by Silicon Valley start-up methods, nurtures innovative ideas that might improve government operations. Now this seed funding and mentorship program could help create a digital "LabGenius" and, according to NIH Director Francis Collins, "has the potential to streamline our labs ... which could have a big impact."
