For May's learning seminar event, Dr. Nicholas Hubbard (Project Leader) and Dr. Roberto Abadie (Pilot-Project Investigator) will present a new paper from their areas of study that is exciting and/or relevant to their projects (or to the Center, itself). They will also give an overview of their RDAR Center project, so that we may all become more informed of the important research that they will be doing this coming year.

Dr. Nicole Weiss, a Pilot-Project Leader, from a partner Center for Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) will be joining as well. She will also be presenting a new and interesting paper, as well as overviewing her own project with the COBRE on Opioids and Overdose in Rhode Island.

The digital event will be held on Thursday, May 14, 2020, from 3:30-4:30pm, in the RDAR Center’s Zoom meeting room.
