Clinical Trials Office (CTO) Research Seminar Continues This Fall

Join the CCTS Clinical Trials Office for our bimonthly Research Seminar Series. Critical research implementation and management topics will be presented on the first and third Thursday at noon in PCAMS (1924 7th Avenue South). These topics will be of interest and relevance specifically to clinical research personnel including investigators, regulatory personnel, study coordinators and financial administrators.  The goal of this new program is to fill in the gaps in information related to the implementation of clinical trials that have been identified by investigators and their research teams. The seminar series is directed by Penny Jester, co-director UAB Clinical Trials Office.    

All sessions are held from noon–1p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month in PCAMS (1924 7th Ave S). For more information, visit the Research Education page of the CCTS website. The series continues into the Fall —check back for future topics. Questions?  Contact the CCTS.
