Getting people in a room together to discuss, learn and network is invaluable to moving global health forward.

Join us at our seminal Global Health Research Seminar Series, where leading researchers in global health present their latest work and hold an open discussion. By exploring the best in current research, the series builds perspective on the direction of global health research more broadly.

We also host Journal Club, Lunch & Learns, guest lectures, panels, showcases, discussions, presentations, publication launches, film screenings and more.

All events are free, open to the public, and are BYOF (Bring-Your-Own-Food), unless otherwise noted.
