The Sullivan Conference Formal Seminar Series was started in 1967 by Dr. Lawrence Sullivan, Professor Emeritus of Physiology, as an informal renal journal club to provide graduate students and postdoctoral fellows a venue to present research papers. This weekly meeting has evolved into an interdisciplinary research conference attended by faculty, students and fellows from Physiology, Anatomy, Biochemistry, Pathology, Nephrology and Pediatric departments.
Today, it is the foremost conference of the Kidney Institute and is intended to showcase the state-of-the-art clinical and basic science advances in nephrology. Attendance is expected by all clinical and research faculty, fellows, residents and students on service. The speakers include invited national and international visiting professors, and division and Kidney Institute faculty. In addition, each fellow is expected to present one conference yearly under the guidance of a faculty-mentor.
Conferences are held in the Jared Grantham Conference Room, 6016 Wahl Hall East, Friday, 8:30-9:30 a.m.
