The Pulmonary Center does research to improve medicine, which is facilitated by ensuring that scientists and clinicians are in regular and open contact. The Pulmonary/Allergy Combined Clinical and Research (CCR) Conference is a manifestation of that. The CCR Conference unifies two efforts which were previously distinct. In Pulmonary Grand Rounds, physicians present cases and discuss cutting-edge clinical approaches to medical challenges. In Work-in-Progress Seminars, scientists present research questions, experiments, results, and interpretations, discussing implications for advancing biology and medicine. The Pulmonary CCR Conference includes both of these activities in one extended session. As often as possible, the 2 components are coordinated so that the medical cases and the research questions are directly and immediately mutually informative. All Pulmonary Center members (faculty, trainees, and staff, from all disciplines) participate in both components. Pulmonary and Allergy/Immunology clinical medicine and research benefit when scientists, clinicians, and clinician-scientists all learn from and inform each other meaningfully and productively.

Pulmonary CCR Planning Committee:

Katrina Traber, Faculty
Finn Hawkins, Faculty
Andrew Berical, Faculty
Anukul Shenoy, Postdoctoral Fellow
Mike Garcia, Pulmonary Fellow
Lindsey Stein, Administration

The Pulmonary CCR conference occurs weekly
Wednesdays from 3:30pm-5:30pm.
