SDMRC P30 Seminar Series

The goal of the SDMRC P30 seminar series is to improve the communication among local scientists, and promote excitement about the research going on by the P30 investigators' labs. This will include local speakers drawn from the San Diego area, from the lab groups in the P30, as well as national/international speakers.
This monthly seminar series is held in Building 12 of the Sanford Burnham Medical Research institute. Two researchers will give updates on their research projects in 20 minute long presentations. Ample time for questions and discussions will allow for critical feedback on the research projects.

The online calendar shows past and upcoming seminars. You can subscribe to the calendar downloading the calendar address using the following link (file: basic.ics) and integrating it in your calendar.


SDMRC Keynote Speaker Seminars

The SDMRC Keynote Speakers Seminars occasionally invites nationally and internationally renown muscle researchers to San Diego to present their cutting edge research to the local research community. Past speakers include James Ervasti, Jan Fridén, Fabio Rossi, Eric Hoffman or Thomas Rando.

SDMRC promoted external meetings

Alternative Muscle Club Meeting

The Alternative Muscle Club meeting is an annual one-day conference aimed at scientists early in their research careers. It provides an opportunity for young investigators in the academic, industry and medical sectors to present their work in a more relaxed environment. Its main goal is to build connections in the research community, and help learn about projects from other research laboratories and organizations.


This years AMC meeting will be held at the UCSD Sanford Consortium Building.


Meeting Date: September 22, 2017
