Our seminar series include investigators from within the Boston area research community as well as from other national and international institutions. The series highlight areas of scientific progress relevant to IBD and digestive disease research.

CSIBD Research Seminar Series

The CSIBD Research Seminar Series focuses on inviting junior investigators to present recent findings and introduce new tools relevant to IBD. Speakers spend a day meeting investigators and have lunch with trainees; this format exposes researchers to the IBD community and provides opportunities to network, develop new research initiatives, and form collaborations.

MGH GI Clinical and Research Seminar Series

This seminar series invites national and international investigators to give state-of-the-art lectures, present recent scientific advances, and introduce new tools and technologies relevant to IBD research. These seminars also provide CSIBD members the opportunity to develop new research initiatives and network with prominent scientists in outside laboratories. Recent seminars focused on single-cell applications in digestive disease research and new tools for microbiome research such as strain libraries.

MGH Immunology Seminar Series

Since 1991, this seminar series has coordinated with the Harvard Medical School Immunology Series such that speakers give a seminar at Harvard Medical School on Wednesday and a seminar at MGH on Thursday, allowing us to have world-renowned experts in immunology visit MGH and meet with faculty and trainees. Integrated into this series is a monthly luncheon with visiting faculty for trainees and fellows that provides an opportunity to interact in a relaxed, casual setting. Please visit the Center for Immunology & Inflammatory Disease for the schedule.
