During the first week of February we had two days of virtual integration activities. All the ESRs gave a pitch about their individual research advancements, to update the consortium with their progress. These pitches catalyzed a discussion among the ESRs to integrate their efforts towards a common clinical scenario. The ESRs identified three particular clinical…
