Join us virtually as we showcase the highlights of our work in our third annual Research Day, on March 24! Research Day is a joint project of the DBEI and the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics. While we will miss seeing everyone in person, we are excited to feature a full keynote by Sue Curry, PhD (details below) and to add the robust benefits of an online research gallery.
