Database for Basic and Translational Science Presenters

The ATS Working Group for PhD, Basic and Translational Scientists has created a database of lung researchers, primarily junior, who are available to deliver virtual seminars.

You can use this database to populate open slots on your divisional or departmental seminar series to support these young scientists. You may also add your own name to the database so you can be contacted as well. This is a great way for our ATS community to support ongoing professional development of our junior members.

View the database.
