DCRI Research Forum

DCRI Research Forum is a platform for thought leaders, visionaries, and educators to share ideas, innovations, and best practices with those who are instrumental in improving patient care and outcomes.

Our Vision:

  1. To share research findings with people who can apply them to improve patient care and outcomes
  2. To share lessons learned and best practices for clinical research so we can all do it better 

Join the discussion every other Tuesday from 12 p.m.-1 p.m. EST at DCRI North Pavilion's Lower Lecture Hall.
