Science Series

The SCCR Science Series is a 2-hour lecture held monthly or bi-monthly, covering various scientific and clinical topics with the specific aim to educate members of the clinical research community. We invite clinicians to discuss anatomy and physiology as well as pathophysiology of various therapeutic areas. Past topics include cardiac anatomy, basic ECG interpretation, infections and the immune system, the gastrointestinal system and common disorders, heart failure, fundamentals of psychiatry and pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in clinical research. Common clinical research assessments have also been covered including the physical exam, the biopsy process and conducting ECGs.

The Science Series is open to all members of the clinical research community in the School of Medicine.
