Local medical researchers and experts from top medical institutions (Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland Clinic, Metrohealth Medical Center, University Hospitals at Case Medical Center, and Louis Stokes VA Medical Center) will describe how their ideas go from the bench (the laboratory) to the bedside (patient care at the doctor’s office or hospital).
