Seminar Series


Exceptional Visiting Scientist Program. This monthly program brings international thought leaders in the fields of digestive diseases to the medical center to present their work and interact with Cedars-Sinai researchers to inspire new approaches to complex problems. Seminars are held through in-person and virtual hybrid platforms.

Gastrointestinal Research-in-Progress Seminar. This monthly meeting reviews ongoing research and stimulates advances in the theme and subthemes of the center, promotes the center's cores, and enhances transdisciplinary collaboration between basic scientists and clinician investigators. 

Cores Workshop. This is a quarterly meeting with investigators to promote the effective use of each research core's services and technologies as well as to discuss means to enhance core performance.

Annual CSDDRC Symposium & Workshop


The Annual CSDDRC Symposium showcases the center, its cores and programs, the work of center investigators, keynote lectures from members of the External Advisory Board, and Pilot and Feasibility Program applicants and awardees.

Career Development


The Grants-in-Progress Mentoring Program uses personalized mentoring to assist in the preparation of grant applications for trainees and for faculty who are new to the field to help ensure successful outcomes and the development and completion of promising research.
