The purpose of the CTRI Seminar Series is to foster clinical and translational research by providing clinicians and scientists at UCSD and our Partner Institutions education on cutting-edge clinical and translational research methodologies and applications. The Seminar Series is also a venue for directors of individual cores and services to discuss the scientific bases of their resources and how they can be more fully utilized. The seminars include presentations describing how services were integrated into protocols, as well as presentations of exciting new technologies that are being considered for inclusion in the Biomarker Laboratory and Affiliated resources. Practical issues are discussed, such as sample handling, labeling, and processing; approaches to data acquisition and manipulation; and critical information on confidentiality and privacy.
Lectures are held on the UCSD School of Medicine campus, Leichtag Building, first floor conference room. Light refreshments are served.
