Costas T. Lambrew Research Retreat

The annual Costas T. Lambrew Research Retreat will be held on May 6, at Maine Medical Center’s Dana Center, bringing together more than 200 physicians, nurses, scientists and trainees from MMC for a day-long multi-disciplinary biomedical research symposium.  The event gives basic and clinical researchers – and those who support them – the opportunity to catch up on each other’s work, to ask questions, to create new collaborations, and to discuss research in more depth.  This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Virginia M. -Y. Lee. Dr. Lee is the John H. Ware 3rd Professor in Alzheimer’s Research in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.

The event is sponsored by Northern New England Clinical & Translational Research Network, Maine Medical Center Research Institute, and Maine Medical Center.
