About Outreach and Training

Workshops incorporate both lectures and extensive hands-on sessions. Programming exercises are carefully designed to reinforce concepts and techniques taught in class.

Instructors have strong scientific and technical backgrounds and are available for individual consultation, including help with participants' own coding needs.

Biomedical Workshops

The education and outreach program of the Biomedical Applications Group includes workshops and online teaching tools, online courses, and workshop webcasts, among other approaches.
