Clinical Investigator Meetings

Discovery Clinical Investigator meetings are held periodically throughout the year. The meetings offer the opportunity to network with other investigators, learn about Discovery programs, and allow investigators to present new clinical proposals in an inclusive and supportive environment. The meetings can be attended in person or via videoconference.

Clinical Investigator Proposal submissions are always being accepted. Learn more about submitting a proposal
