It is essential for researchers to keep abreast of the work being done by colleagues in a variety of disciplines. To facilitate this, the UCLA CFAR sponsors a weekly conference featuring presentations made by researchers working in both basic and translational sciences, clinical therapeutics and biomedical prevention. The topics covered include, among many others, novel therapeutics, vaccines, stem-cell research, aging, and viral pathogenesis.
