Clinical Research Monthly Lecture Series

Each month, ACCR offers free educational lectures presented by various subject matter experts involved in clinical research at Northwestern and the surrounding community. These lectures are a great resource for anyone involved or interested in clinical research, and serve as an excellent networking opportunity. 

Lectures take place on the third Friday of the month from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Northwestern Memorial Hospital Feinberg Pavilion, third floor, Conference Rooms B & C (unless listed otherwise).

Please  contact us with suggestion for a future lecture topic or if you would like to present at a future lecture.
