Clinical Research Day is an annual celebration of clinical and translational investigators and their accomplishments over the past twelve months at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). Every year the clinical research community at MGH becomes more vibrant and robust with this year being no exception. This year, we had an astounding 253 abstract submissions reflecting the exciting work being conducted by clinical research teams here at MGH. Clinical Research Day is a great opportunity for interaction between clinical researchers and for learning more about the different types of research being conducted at our Institution. It is also an opportunity for sharing ideas that may contribute to strategic thinking and future planning.
The theme of the Clinical Research Day 2021 is “Past, Present and Future of Clinical Research in the era of COVID-19“. The keynote speaker for Clinical Research Day 2021 is Dr. Brett Leav. Dr. Leav is the Vice President of Clinical Development, Public Health Vaccines at Moderna.
Dr. Leav will present Clinical Development of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine: A View from the Engine Room
