The 19th Annual Clinical and Translational Science (CTS) Graduate Program Symposium will be Friday, May 5, 8:00AM-1:00PM in Wolff Auditorium at Tufts Medical Center (800 Washington Street, Boston).
This year’s keynote speaker is Dariush Mozaffarian, MD, DrPH, Dean of the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy, and the Jean Mayer Chair and Professor of Nutrition.

He has authored nearly 300 scientific publications on dietary fats, foods, and diet patterns; global obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases; and evidence-based and cost-effective dietary policies.
The event will also feature presentations and posters by students enrolled in the CTS Graduate Program, and the 2017 Clinical and Translational Science Poster Competition.
