Schwartz Speaks at NIEHS Lecture Series
David Schwartz, who will assume leadership of NIEHS in April, was the headline speaker in two - yes two - new lecture series in February.
Schwartz is currently the chief of the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine at Duke University Medical School, but came to NIEHS Feb. 22 to deliver the first in these new lecture series:
- The NIEHS Assembly of Scientists Annual Leadership Lecture. Schwartz's presentation: "Novel Gene Discovery in Innate Immunity."
- The Clinical Research Seminar Series. Schwartz's presentation: "Genetic Basis of Pulmonary Fibrosis."
Perry Blackshear, director of clinical research at NIEHS, said the new series on clinical research will consist of monthly educational seminars and presentations on translational and other science-related clinical research. The lectures will be held on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. in the Rodbell Conference Center.
Every two weeks, the clinical research lecture series will conduct programs featuring trainees. Look for these items in the NIEHS master calendar.
