The Community of Interest Webinar Series aims to create connections between clinician scientists (of all disciplines), academic health researchers and clinicians who are interested in research (but not sure where to start).

Each session will include a brief presentation of two research projects associated with a particular research area and a facilitated open discussion about future projects, collaborations and national developments. Each session will be shaped for relevance across the whole of TAAHC and for people with a variety of research experience.

Webinars will be on topics related to one of the four TAAHC research themes. This will enable participants to form new research collaborations that may facilitate applications for TAAHC research funding.

Reflecting the intersecting nature of the TAAHC research themes, each webinar will focus on a particular 'craft group' based on a selected population group (e.g. older persons) or disease (e.g. vascular disease). Participants are welcome to attend all webinars or pick or choose according to your interests.

Details of upcoming webinars can be found below or in this flyer.
