Research Day 2017

We are pleased to announce the 15th Annual Department of Medicine Research Day. This event will span two days, May 1-2, 2017. The resident research component will take place on May 1, 2017 at the University Club, while the graduate student, post-doc, and junior faculty research component will be held in the Biomedical Science Tower lobby on May 2, 2017.  Our guest speaker will be Dr. Tadataka Yamada.

The goal of the departmental research day is to showcase the work being done by junior faculty, fellows and medical residents/graduate students with both poster and oral presentations and to encourage and foster our young clinical and basic science researchers. Our research day activities include poster viewing and judging for the most outstanding presentations. Last year's Research Day was highly successful and featured 246 posters, with three poster viewing sessions, and 8 oral presentations from junior investigators over two days.

Faculty with rank at or below assistant professor, clinical research and post-doctoral fellows, and medical residents, and graduate students are encouraged to submit abstracts for poster or oral presentations.  Participants will have the option of getting their poster printed by the Department free of charge or of printing their own posters.
