May 7, 2015

Dear Colleagues,

The purpose is to provide a forum for discussion and interaction and describe progress in the various projects of our JHU ICMIC Program. The first forty minutes of the meeting will focus on a scientific presentation, and the remaining fifteen to twenty minutes will be for discussion. These meetings will be held on Wednesdays from 3:30 pm to 4:30 p.m.

Our monthly CME-accredited JHU ICMIC Seminar Series featuring invited experts continue at the usual time but are highlighted in red. Please make note of the varying locations of each presentation.

Light refresment is will be served.
