Translational Science 2020 will feature two virtual experiences on April 15-16, 2020 (12:00 - 2:00 pm EDT, 9:00 - 11:00 am PDT). This innovative approach will:

  • Provide a forum for leaders and scholars to present and discuss their work
  • Demonstrate how clinical and translational researchers are pivotal in solving emergent challenges
  • Support our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) in achieving their goals of advancing in clinical and translational science
