CaneSearch: Miami CTSI-Sponsored “Science of Obesity” Research Day
The Miami Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) will hold its first major, University-wide initiative, “CaneSearch,” on Wednesday, February 27.
The event, which will focus on the Science of Obesity, will bring together University scientists, clinicians, students, educators and caregivers to promote meaningful partnerships, advance collaborative research, and display cutting-edge science and community initiatives that address this serious issue. CTSI members also will engage colleagues from regional universities and research institutes, as well as community-based partners and research foundations.
The all-day event will start with a poster session from at 10 a.m. on the Schoninger Research Quadrangle, where more than 100 posters on obesity research will be on display until 4 p.m. There also will be fitness demonstrations, healthy food trucks and other vendors, giveaways and live music.
In addition to the poster session, a Collaborative Research Exchange Forum (CREF) chaired by Tracie Miller, M.D., professor of pediatrics and Director of the Division of Pediatric Clinical Research, will take place at 1:30 p.m. in the Lois Pope LIFE Center, seventh-floor auditorium, and will feature panel discussions and speakers from across the University.
