Clinical Research Grand Rounds at the Welch Center

Wednesdays, September-May, 12:00 - 1:15 PM

2024 E. Monument Street, Powe Room (1-500Q)

Clinical Research Grand Rounds provides an opportunity for Welch Center faculty and guest scientists to present the results of ongoing, planned, and completed epidemiological, clinical, and translational research. This weekly conference is open to anyone in the Johns Hopkins Community and is often attended by faculty, trainees, and students from the Schools of Public Health and Medicine. The Welch Center hosts several guest speakers from outside the Center and outside the University each year. Master's and doctoral students in the clinical epidemiology and cardiovascular epidemiology concentrations are required to attend.

Through the forum of Clinical Research Grand Rounds, the Welch Center enhances knowledge of the fields of clinical epidemiology and patient-oriented research, and provides an intellectual platform for discussions of innovative ideas and methods in different disciplines, specialties, and subspecialties represented in the Schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing.

Clinical Research Grand Rounds sessions begin with a five to ten minute presentation on various innovative tools and resources. These presentations are known as Research Pearls and typically cover data services, library and information services, informatics, research cores, centers, etc., that others have used and have found helpful in their research. The presentations seek to introduce practical solutions and innovative methods to increase efficiency in research.
