Seminars

Content

The Section of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism hosts monthly seminars to enrich our faculty and trainees.

Endocrinology-Renal Raw Research Seminar

The intent of this seminar is to help investigators receive constructive feedback on their research and begin new collaborations. Investigators present unpublished data, which can range from speculative hypotheses to emerging data from studies in progress. Although this is done in a seminar format, it is not a didactic lecture but an interactive presentation. This seminar is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month in the Endocrinology conference room or via Zoom invitations.
