On the first Wednesday of most months, we host an informal gathering known as the CCTS Forum, which offers colleagues an opportunity to learn the latest on a variety of clinical and translational science topics. The focus changes each month to help foster creative and unbridled discussion among a wide range of people from across UAB as well as the broader CCTS Partner Network.
