CRF Pavilion

For this year’s TCT, CRF has created the CRF Pavilion, which will include dedicated areas for the Skirball Center for Innovation and the Clinical Trials Center as well as our Global Partners.

The Pavilion also houses a theater where there will be events scheduled throughout the day. This space will be used to engage TCT attendees with discussions of Live Cases, presentations from SCI, CTC and our global partners as well as opportunities for Fellows to ask physicians any question they would like.  Be sure to come to the Exhibitor Hall and visit the CRF Pavilion.
