Monthly virtual meetings hosted by eight participating adult and three pediatric O’Brien Kidney Centers
The Vanderbilt-O’Brien Kidney Center (VOKC) is coordinating a monthly, Zoom-based seminar series for the eight adult and three pediatric O’Brien Kidney Centers in the U.S. The National O’Brien Center Kidney Seminars (NOCKS) will take once a month, rotating each month between centers on dates and times to be determined by the presenting center.
The idea of this seminar series is to promote regular scientific interactions between participating centers, with each center selecting one speaker to present some of the most exciting current research from their institution. These will be 40-minute talks, followed by a moderated discussion. We also plan to set up a private chat room at the end of each of the seminars for interested trainees to “meet the professor.”
Each of the participating centers will choose their speakers and host each of the Zoom meetings with support from the VOKC to coordinate meetings and promote lively, interactive discussions.
