CDTRP Research Connect

The CDTRP is pleased to announce the start of our new discussion-based meeting series called “Research Connect“.

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.
