MSTP Grand Rounds Schedule

The MSTP Grand Rounds Series was conceived as a vehicle to showcase not only the MSTP program, but also to highlight the important biomedical research of University of Iowa investigators.  These approximately 50 minute presentations are divided into two integrated sections:  the first is a clinical presentation describing an interesting case and the relevant diagnostic information (laboratory tests, biopsies and imaging studies).  The second section is a scientific presentation of a focused avenue of research directly related to the case; it may be in the area of diagnosis, pathogenesis, or therapeutic intervention.   Information about current and former Grand Rounds presentations is included below.
