New this year, the Department of Surgery will host a series of Research Roundtables. These events are intended to promote dialogue and networking opportunities for researchers from across Dartmouth College and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Each Roundtable event is focused on a specific cross-disciplinary theme related to surgery. Invited faculty researchers will share examples of ongoing research with surgical faculty and trainees during an informal discussion over dinner. We hope this will foster collaborations related to the chosen theme, and facilitate discussions between scientific faculty from across the College and Medical School. Dinner is provided.

Griswold, PhD, Associate Professor of Engineering, Thayer School of Engineering and Doug Van Citters, MS, PhD, Associate Professor of Engineering, Thayer School of Engineering Chair: Michael Zegans, MD, Professor of Surgery and Microbiology and Immunology, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center
