Forums are open, interactive gatherings where presenters bring a question/challenge for participants to discuss. The forum pairs University of Missouri quantitative scientists with MU Health Care clinical care providers to formulate a cohesive problem statement.

Precision Medicine Forum (PMF)

Charge: The charge of the Precision Medicine Forum (PMF) is to facilitate the formulation, launch and support of significant multidisciplinary collaborative clinical research projects and eventually research programs whose objective is to improve human health care and outcomes.

Schedule: 1-3 p.m. first and third Wednesday, BMI MA215 or via Zoom

Translational Precision “ONE” Medicine Forum (TPOMF)

Charge: Individuals whose interest and activity includes the notion of “OneHealth” and “OneMedicine." That is, knowledge and best practice from animal care might be examined to determine what if any value there is to human care and vice-versa. In addition, identifying complications/symptoms/diagnoses or treatment commonalities that might be leveraged in either direction.

Lead: Leslie Lyons, PhD

How to participate: Email Leslie Lyons, PhD with problem/inquiry.

Schedule: TBD

Quantitative Methods in Precision Medicine Forum (QMPMF)

Charge: The Quantitative Methods in Precision Medicine Program trains physicians, scientists and those seeking to impact the MUH precision medicine efforts in the art of applying sophisticated quantitative methods to PM’s big data problems.

Schedule: 3-4:30 p.m. Fridays, Acuff Auditorium (MA217) or via Zoom

Collaborative Forum on Cancer Biology Research and Translational Precision Medicine (TPCM)

Charge: The Translational Precision Cancer Medicine Forum and Cancer Biology Network consist of a collection of scientists, physicians, and quantitative experts from many disciplines. These individuals meet on a regular basis to present and discuss their projects, research, and ideas to foster opportunities for collaborative cancer initiatives. The forum, twice a month, is coordinated through the Bond Life Sciences Center and the Center for Biomedical Informatics. Cancer investigators, bench and quantitative scientists, health care providers, students, and others interested in translational research and precision medicine are welcome to participate.

How to participate: Contact or to join the listserve.

Schedule: 4:30-5:30 p.m., first and third Thursday of every month, live at MA215, LSC572 and via Zoom
