The Joslin Enrichment Program facilitates the exchange of research information and discussions among investigators, fellows, and students within the Joslin Diabetes Center, as well as between Joslin staff and outside researchers with similar interests.
The Longwood Area Diabetes/Metabolism Research Seminar Series (Thursday seminars) consists of weekly research seminars featuring invited external scientists. In addition, five named lectureships (Michael Brownlee Visiting Professor Lectureship in Diabetes Research, Ray A. and Robert L. Kroc Lectureship on Diabetes, Priscilla White Lectureship on Metabolism, Alexander Marble Lectureship on Diabetes and the C. Ronald Kahn Distinguished Lectureship) highlight the work of exceptional scientists. In addition, a weekly internal research seminar series (Tuesday seminars) serves as a platform for senior postdoctoral research fellows and investigators to share their ongoing research with others at the Joslin. See below for the Diabetes and Metabolism Research Seminar Series dates and speakers.
A clinical and translational seminar series features external and internal speakers and case presentations arising from the clinical practice experience in the Longwood Medical Area.
