Clinical Research Seminars

Offered monthly, Clinical Research Seminars provide a learning opportunity for the research community on a number of topics within human subjects research. These seminars often include important ethical, regulatory, or implementation content. Organized by the CRRO, the seminar series is supported by the Clinical Translational Science Institute and the Office of Human Research Affairs.

Seminars are sixty minutes in length and are held remotely. Zoom meeting information will be provided prior to the seminar (usually 24 hours before) and will be sent only to those who have registered in advance. 

Seminars are designed for BU Medical Campus and BMC staff or those from affiliated institutions. Individuals from non-affiliated external organizations or institutions are unable to attend. Registrations must be completed using an institutional email address, no personal email addresses will be accepted. 

All previous seminar recordings and slides are available in our Seminar Library
