The weekly Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series (WALS) provides a mechanism for presentations on state-of-the-art discoveries.
Who Should Attend
The Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series target audience includes M.D., M.D./Ph.D., D.D.S. or equivalent doctoral level scientists with professional and research backgrounds that allow them to benefit from lectures on current topics in laboratory and clinical research.
After attending the activity, participants will demonstrate the ability to: (1) Define options, alternatives, and new practices that will guide the conduct of research. (2) Evaluate practical information presented about laboratory, clinical, and population-based research principles based on state-of-the-art scientific discovery and achievements. (3) Analyze information and opportunities to increase and improve collaboration among investigators and move scientific frontiers forward, especially to bridge areas of laboratory, translational, and clinical research.
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Policy on Speaker and Provider Disclosure
It is the policy of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine that the presenter and provider globally disclose conflicts of interest and any discussion of unlabeled/unapproved uses of drugs or devices during their presentation(s). The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine OCME has established policies in place that will identify and resolve conflicts of interest prior to this educational activity. Detailed disclosure will be made prior to presentation of the education.
The Center for Information Technology (CIT) makes special NIH events, seminars, and lectures available to viewers on the VideoCast web site. VideoCasting is the method of electronically streaming digitally encoded video and audio data from a server to a client. Streaming files are not downloaded, but rather are broadcast in a manner similar to television broadcasts. The videos are processed by a compression program into a streaming format and delivered in a staggered fashion to minimize impact upon the network and maximize the experience of the content for the viewer. When users request a streaming file they will receive an initial burst of data after a short delay (file latency). While content is being viewed, the streaming server machine and software continues to “stream” data in such a manner that the viewer experiences no break in the content.
Sign language interpreters will be provided. Individuals with disabilities who need reasonable accommodation to participate in this event should contact the WALS office at 301-594-6747 or WALSoffice@od.nih.gov.
