Clinical research scholars to deliver series of Grand Rounds

Road in the Oregon high desert

Visiting scholars from clinical and translational science institutes around the country will present virtual lectures as part of the CTSA Visiting Professorship program. The Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute at OHSU will host the Clinical Research Scholars, winners of CTSA KL2 awards.

Wednesday, Feb. 9, 9-10 a.m. PST
Anticipating and mitigating oncologic clinical deterioration through data science and implementation science
Patrick Lyons, M.D., M.Sc., instructor of pulmonary and critical care, University of Washington, St. Louis

The visiting professors will deliver grand rounds lectures and meet with scientists engaged in similar or complementary research. A goal of this program is to foster an exchange of ideas and spur collaborations among different clinical and translational science center hubs.

The CTSA Program, housed within the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, is designed to develop innovative solutions that improve the efficiency, quality and impact of processes for turning observations in the laboratory, clinic and community into interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public.

Open to the public.
