CU-CSU Summit VIII - Building Research Collaboration

"COVID-19 and the Colorado Research Environment"


Every summer, the CCTSI hosts a daylong conference with the goal of fostering new collaborations across campuses and research areas. In 2020, the CU-CSU Summit took place on August 19--and was completely online for the first time ever!

The conference drew PhD, DVM and MD investigators, graduate and medical students, residents and post-doc fellows, veterinary students, associate deans, department and division heads from CU Anschutz, CU Boulder, CU Denver and CSU. And in 2020, attendees were able to claim CME or MOC credits.
