MAPTA Presents "Bridging the Gap"

The term “Bench to Bedside” is often used in translational research. However, not enough forums exist where clinicians and translational scientists discuss clinically-relevant issues. To have these discussions, the Methodist Association for Postdoctoral and Trainee Affairs has come up with a new series, “Bridging the Gap”. The series will focus on different medical fields each month. Each talk will include a clinician at Houston Methodist to discuss a current disease, its treatment, and gaps in the treatment, and a researcher from the Houston Methodist Research Institute to discuss current research being conducted in order to bring a new device or treatment to the clinic.
