They review clinical research proposals from local physicians who are doing research in oncology, cardiology, critical care medicine, etc. This Board meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 7:30-9am at the Heart Center at Cone Hospital. He is allowed to bring one or two students to the meetings to observe. We leave from the Stone Building parking lot at 7am.
