The 2nd Charles Institute Seminar Series ran from October 2020 until June 2021, with 19 speakers presenting in total.
The series saw an array of guest speakers from Ireland, UK, US & the EU, present on a wide range of topics from clinical, to basic research perspectives. It was fully online via Adobe Connect due to the global pandemic.
The chair was Prof. Desmond Tobin, and the series was 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.
