The 1st Charles Institute Seminar Series was launched in May 2019, and ran until June 2020, with 23 speakers presenting in total.
The series saw an array of guest speakers from Ireland, Uk & EU, present on a wide range of topics from clinical, to basic research perspectives. The presentations were both in-person in the Charles Seminar Room as well as being broadcast to healthcare professionals on Adobe Connect for most of the series, but due to the global pandemic, it switched to a wholly-online format from March 2020.
The series was chaired by Prof. Desmond Tobin, and supported by an unrestricted educational grant by RELIFE (part of A. Menarini Ireland), and synopses of the seminars featured in The Medical Independent (www.mindo.ie), as written by medical journalist Pat Kelly.
