CDTRP 2024 Research Connect Series

The CDTRP Research Connect series is taking place every other Tuesday at 3 pm ET. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for this engaging series!

This series streamlines the subset of Theme, Hub, and Working Group meetings that aimed to share and discuss the latest research findings across the network and our Webinar series, which featured national and international speakers. Theme, Hub, and Working Group meetings aimed at developing new initiatives, projects, or grants will be scheduled separately, approximately three times per year per group. Our goal is to make it easy for our members to know about and attend high quality presentations across all Themes and topics of interest. We are aiming for active discussions including researchers, trainees, and patient, family, and donor partners, engaging the whole community as if we were having a family dinner rather than listening to a formal presentation.

On June 25, 2024 we are please to have Dr. Sonny Dhanani, present on the topic:

When is dead, really dead?
