Clinical Research Conferences (Wednesdays)

Our Clinical Research Conferences are designed for clinical investigators in the fields of nutrition, metabolism, genetics, imaging, therapeutics, clinical trials, and community intervention as a forum for investigators to share their expertise in methodology and discovery. They afford an opportunity for  investigators to become acquainted with each other's expertise and methods available to clinical researchers, by exploring the methods being used by various investigators and establish clinical research resources available in the various laboratories of investigators. These are also intended to foster collaboration and explore opportunities for collaborative grant applications and to provide a mentoring forum for MDs and PhDs interested in disease-oriented clinical research and clinical trials. The weekly forum is held at noon Wednesdays in Y6.224 on the sixth floor of the Green Research Building in the Center for Human Nutrition.

Obesity Alliance Lectures (Task Force for Obesity Research) (Thursdays)

The UT Southwestern Obesity Alliance's weekly conferences on metabolism, nutrition, and obesity are held at noon Thursdays  in Y6.224. The conferences are sponsored by the Task Force for Obesity Research (TORS).
