Conversation between researchers beside poster presentations

Seminar Series Schedule 2020-2021

As part of our effort to expand interest in digestive disease and liver research on campus, we have created two Seminar Series through the DDRCC Enrichment Program. This includes the GI Grand Rounds series hosted by the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology in the Department of Medicine and select presentations in the Regenerative Medicine and Cell Biology Department seminar series. These series feature presentations from internationally renowned investigators, whose research exploits innovative approaches in the study and treatment of digestive and liver disease.
