Third Thursdays with the ICTR Lecture Series

This series showcases many of the resources, programs, educational training and other opportunities we offer.

 

Our tools are designed to transform the translational process so that new treatments and cures for disease can be delivered to patients faster. On the third Thursday of the month, speakers will present a topic that can directly aid clinical research study team members.

We encourage all faculty, staff and students to attend. There will be a question and answer period at the close of each lecture. If you have suggestions for future topics, feel free to contact us. For information on prior lectures, please email Crystal Williams at cwill137@jhu.edu.
