Clinical Research Chalk Talks

Clinical Research Chalk Talk

The Clinical Research Chalk Talk program's goal is to facilitate the exchange of ideas among clinical researchers across the Department. The Clinical Research Chalk Talk will provide a forum for receiving feedback from peers on a current project, manuscript or grant proposal as well as allow the reseracher to refine their ideas. 

Chalk Talks will be held on the third Wednesday of each month from 12:00 noon – 1:00 pm. Please contact Matthew Herrick ( for meeting passcodes.
