8th Annual Southern Translational Education & Research (STaR) Meeting-September 21-22

To improve human health, scientific discoveries must be translated into practical applications. Such discoveries typically begin at "the bench" with basic research, in which scientists study disease at a molecular or cellular level and then progress to the clinical level, or the patient's bedside. The conference will include state-of-the-art topics in clinical and translational science as well as opportunities for attendees to showcase their research and network with peers to develop regional collaborations. The two keynote speakers are Steve Stice (UGA) and David Hess (MCG). They will present some of their current research and highlight private company partnerships that they have developed/used to fund their research. All participants are encouraged to submit abstracts of papers for presentation. Excellence in clinical and translational science will be recognized during the meeting through abstract awards.Questions?
