The MCCTR Seminar Series offers monthly seminars as a forum for the presentation of high-impact obesity-related research and as an opportunity for junior investigators to present their research and receive feedback. The MCCTR works closely with the Mississippi Center for Obesity Research and the Cardiorenal and Metabolic Diseases Research Center to promote the series and to accommodate campus visits by accomplished scientists. In addition, seminars are broadcast widely to our partner institutions. To date, the MCCTR and COBRE have collaborated to provide over 30 seminars the research population at UMMC and our partner institutions.
Upcoming seminars and seminars from our current fiscal year are listed below. If you would like to receive notifications of seminar dates and/or a link view a seminar remotely, contact MCCTR@umc.edu.
The main goal of the COBRE-MCCTR "Workin Progress" Meetings is to help oinvestigators advance their research programs and prepare for submission of extramural grant applications.
These meetins focus on new research ideas, specific aims of investigators' projects, updates of research progress, and new research methods/technologies. Meetings are held monthly and generally feature two short presentations (15 minutes each) by clinical and translational researchers as well as basic scientists, followed by substantial discussions aimed at critiquing and advancing the research projects.
All members of the MCCTR and COBRE as well as any other investigators who are interested in the discussion topics are invited. Members of the Internal and External Advisory Boards are also invited to join the dicussions which will be video conferenced.
