Research Grand Rounds

The Pathology ACP Research Grand Rounds (RGR) provide clinicians with the opportunity to hear from expert researchers about the latest developments in specific areas of Pathology related research and understand existing research gaps. It is hoped that such sessions will allow sharing of knowledge, ideas and possibly lead to new projects and collaborations.
