Research Grand Rounds are Back!

The new academic year has begun for Research Grand Rounds, hosted by MedStar Health Research Institute and Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science.

This Friday, September 11th, Waddah Al-Refaie, MD, Chief of Surgical Oncology at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, Surgeon-in-Chief at Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Director of the Joint MedStar-Georgetown Surgical Outcomes Research Center.  Dr. Al-Refai’s talk is entitled, “Readmission after Cancer Surgery in the US”. The lecture will take place at MedStar Washington Hospital Center – 6th Floor, CTEC Theater 12:30-1:30pm. 

This lecture is part of an ongoing, monthly lecture series that provides a forum for researchers throughout the MedStar Health System and the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) to present their research methodology, findings and implications of their work to the medical and scientific community. The topics cover work done in diverse areas focusing on clinical, translational and interdisciplinary aspects. The lectures are 45-50 minutes in length followed by a 10-15 minute question and answer session. 

These lectures are great for research team members at all levels since no one is expected to come to the lecture as an expert in the topic of the day. Communication across disciplines is encouraged. The ultimate goal of the lecture series is to improve knowledge of cutting edge medical advances in the various fields and to enhance collaborations between departments and institutions. 

The lectures take place on the third Friday of every month. For more information and to view past Grand Rounds presentations, visit:  http://www.georgetownhowardctsa.org/education/seminars-and-workshops/research-grand-rounds
