Comments from 2014 course attendees:
  
“ Amazing—I learned so much and really enjoyed the variety of speakers. The 20 minutes lectures and 10 minute Q&A’s were still great timing.”
 
“The instructors were great and the curriculum was well thought out.”
 
“The small groups and the lab session were the most valuable to my learning. They reinforced important concepts and allowed great group discussion. I also really appreciated the breadth of the concepts covered. Definitely a great addition to my education.”
