EPIC-URM Seminar Series

(Expanded Programming for Interdisciplinary Collaboration to create Unique Research Missions)
Sponsored by the Dean of the School of Medicine

The seminar series will introduce our research community to diverse faculty from outside of WSU SOM. Learning about the research programs of this unique cohort of research scholars provides an opportunity to expand our community pool of collaborators and broaden our thinking about the topics we may consider for our own research programs.   

All Seminars occur on Tuesdays at 1pm in person and on Zoom: 
Meeting ID: 995 0118 8791
Passcode: 37427
