Now entering its third year, the Internal Medicine Research Seminar Series provides a unique forum to showcase the broad array of discovery being conducted within the department. The majority of the sessions will follow a now-traditional format: two presenters each describing their individual work for 20 minutes, reserving 10 minutes for audience discussion, fostering collaboration and potential new ideas. However, the 2019 lineup will begin with a couple new topics, which should appeal to every researcher regardless of their specialty or curiosity.
First up will be Christine Blaumueller, PhD, Director of the Carver College of Medicine’s Scientific Editing and Research Communication Core, who will use both session’s time slots to discuss scientific rigor in grant applications. Donna Hammond, PhD, Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Pharmacology, will fill the full time covering statistical analysis in research. Even if you know a lot about these topics, we believe there will be new information and new perspectives for any researcher. Audience members should still come armed with questions because the heart of the Research Seminar Series is interactivity.
The rest of 2019 will look similar to previous years’ lineups. We hope to see you there!
