If you would like an additional member of your research staff to attend, please email requesting approval. Each request will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis dependent upon budget and room space restrictions.

If the Protocol PI and/or Study Coordinator are unable to attend, you will be asked to identify someone from your research team to attend in their stead.
