CTRID Seminars and Events


CTRID/MEDVAMC Research Seminars


Continuing Medical Education (CME)-accredited research seminars are held at 4 p.m. every Thursday, and at this time are hosted exclusively on Zoom. Our seminar series provides a platform to promote interactions and collaboration among new and established investigators. Our audience members have a broad range of research expertise, and often include a few clinicians with limited basic science background. Moreover, the seminar also allows investigators to seek feedback on upcoming grant applications, manuscripts, etc.
