Research helps us better understand diseases and can lead to advances in diagnosis and treatment. This section provides resources to help you learn about medical research and ways to get involved.
Nonprofit support and advocacy groups bring together patients, families, medical professionals, and researchers. These groups often raise awareness, provide support, and develop patient-centered information. Many are the driving force behind research for better treatments and possible cures. They can direct people to research, resources, and services. Many groups also have experts who serve as medical advisors. Visit their website or contact them to learn about the services they offer.

American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Conference on DNA Repair and Mutagenesis Saturday, May 30, 2009 -
Friday, June 5, 2009
Location: Fairmont Chateau Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Description: The major goals of this conference were to disseminate novel, unpublished results; identify new technologies and clinical therapies; and foster new collaborations among participants. A hallmark of this conference is the exceptionally broad cross-section of participants in terms of research focus (basic, translational, and clinical), age (the large meeting venue draws many younger scientists, graduate students, and senior investigators; ASM committed $20,000 to subsidize graduate student travel), institutional affiliation (academia, government, private industry, and publishing), and geography. Numerous opportunities were provided for in-depth discussion during and after sessions and at meals, including the popular evening poster sessions to promote informal interactions among all participants.
