About the DRC Virtual Seminar Series

The Virtual Diabetes Research Center Seminar Series began as an effort to connect investigators and trainees during this time of great change and isolation related to the COVID crisis. This seminar series is organized by the NIDDK-funded Diabetes Research Centers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Columbia University, Joslin Diabetes Center, Indiana University, Stanford University, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, UCSD/UCLA, UCSF, the University of Chicago, the University of Colorado, the University of Michigan, the University of Washington, Vanderbilt University, Washington University, Yale University, and in North Carolina (logos and connections below). Each seminar in the series features an outstanding scientist or panel of scientists discussing the latest in diabetes, obesity, or metabolic research.

The seminars are held on the second Wednesday of the month at (2:00 PM ET | 1:00 PM CT | 12:00 PM MT | 11:00 AM PT) unless this date coincides with a federal holiday. All webinars are free to attend. Trainees are encouraged to sign-up to meet with speakers after each seminar.
