Seminar Series: Ethel Donaghue Center for Translating Research into Practice and Policy

Are you near the University of Connecticut Health Center? If so, check out this seminar series...

The TRIPP Center series focuses on practice-oriented translational research, seeking to improve processes of care and health outcomes by accelerating the transfer of evidence-based medical practice into the community. This year the emphasis is on translational informatics. We have invited leaders in each area to present and provide our audience with the opportunity to learn about their research.

Seminars are held Thursdays at 12 noon at the Low Learning Center at the University of Connecticut Health Center
