The Seminar Series is an opportunity for members to present their research to the community. Usually held on the second Tuesday of each month, these are coordinated by Dr. Despina Sitara.
The Bone Interest Group is hosted by the NYU-HHC Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). The goal is to provide an opportunity for investigators to share ideas and develop collaborations. These are usually held on a monthly basis and are coordinated by Ms. Rosa Hsieh.
