The Oklahoma ACE co-sponsors a weekly Autoimmunity and Clinical Immunology Research Forum, partners with OMRF to bring in outside speakers for the OMRF Research Forum, and co-hosts a journal club and clinical conference. At the Autoimmunity Research Forum, members present works-in-progress and receive feedback in a collegial, yet scientifically critical, interdisciplinary setting. This is a critical tool for allowing our members to strengthen their hypotheses, experimental plans, and conclusions before external peer review, and for helping our junior members develop strong presentation skills. The Arthritis and Clinical Immunology Journal Club provides an opportunity for members to delve into important developments in the literature. Finally, the Rheumatology Clinical Conference helps connect basic and translational researchers with clinical investigators, providing our members with a strong clinical perspective on their research.
