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

The discussions take place every Tuesday from 12 p.m.–1 p.m. ET at DCRI North Pavilion Lower Lecture Hall and are livestreamed on YouTube with 30 minutes for didactic presentation and 30 minutes for interactive Q&A, panels, debate, and more!

Research Forum returns on Tuesday, Jan. 23
