As part of the annual Seminar Series, the Developmental Pilot Highlights Seminar features two previous pilot awardees to present their completed research to the Penn CFAR community in a formal, seminar setting. This seminar provides a valuable platform for awardees to address the academic research community, obtain feedback, and spark collaborations towards larger funding efforts.

The 2014 Developmental Pilot Highlights Seminar has not yet been scheduled. Stay tuned for details!
