2012 Second Annual Joint Institute Symposium

Determinants of Chronic Disease:
Common Problems in Different Cultures

Ann Arbor, Michigan
November 28-30, 2012

The Joint Institute for Translational and Clinical Research is a unique partnership between the University of Michigan Health System and Peking University Health Science Center. Officially launched in October 2010 with a combined commitment of 14 million dollars, the Joint Institute sponsors high-impact collaborative research that leverages the unique strengths of each university to advance global health.

This year's symposium will feature keynote speakers, breakout discussions, and posters sessions for JI and non-JI researchers. Last year, almost 60 University of Michigan community members from six schools and colleges were able to join their Chinese colleagues in attending the symposium hosted by the Peking University Health Science Center (PUHSC). We anticipate the same wonderful representation as the University of Michigan Health System welcomes its PUHSC partners.
