1. Dismantling the One-Size-Fits-All Model of Medicine


    from Benefunder Added 4 0 0

    For a long time, treating patients has operated on a “one-size-fits-all” model in which we have assumed that all patients with a given disease name have similar problems and thus, need the same treatment. This phenomenon, termed the homogeneity assumption, has recently been debunked by the “Unique Disease Principle” which states that disease is fundamentally different in each individual it affects. Dr. Shuji Ogino, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, created and continues to develop the blossoming field of Molecular Pathological Epidemiology (MPE). Through the emergence of MPE as a new field, he hopes to make broad impacts and contribute to overall advancements of science for maximum benefits to human beings in the world, by means of transforming paradigms and frameworks of biomedical and health sciences. Dr. Ogino’s approach is bringing personalized care back to care providers while producing results that save lives.

        • 14th Annual Heller Lecture: Professor Eugene Wang


          from Vancouver Art Gallery Added

          14th Annual Heller Lecture: Professor Eugene Wang Tuesday, March 17, 2015 The Vancouver Art Gallery presents Eugene Wang, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Professor of Asian Art at Harvard University, as the 14th annual Heller Lecturer. This illustrated lecture, To Move Mountains: Old Script and New Practices in Contemporary Chinese Art addresses the complex relationships that tradition and history have within contemporary Chinese art. Presented alongside Unscrolled: Reframing Tradition in Contemporary Chinese Art, it builds on the current exhibition’s key themes, with a fulsome discussion about how tradition is transformed through personal experiences, politics and contemporary art practices. A third-century Chinese fable has it that a ninety-year-old man resolved to move two mountains that stood in front of his house. For nearly 1,700 years this story of foolhardiness and determination fluctuated in and out of popularity until the twentieth century, which saw a renewed cultural interest in the old man’s spirit and drive to tackle the impossible. This ancient story has now turned into a new source for art making. If art is about “purposive purposelessness,” as philosopher Immanuel Kant proposed, the old man’s stubbornness indeed makes a good recipe for art and fuels many instances of modern and contemporary Chinese art practices. To Move Mountains, a lecture by Professor Eugene Wang, elaborates on how contemporary Chinese art engages with traditional though and explains why and how this happened.
