Research Day 2018

We are pleased to announce the 16th Annual Department of Medicine Research Day, which will be held, April 30-May 1, 2018. The conference’s resident research component will take place on April 30, 2018, 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 1, 2018. Our guest speaker will be Dr. Nancy J. Brown, Chair of the Department of Medicine and Physician-in-Chief at Vanderbilt Hospital.

Our goal is to showcase the research of the departmental junior faculty, fellows, medical residents and graduate students through both poster and oral presentations, and to encourage and foster young clinical and basic science researchers. 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 eight oral presentations from junior investigators.

The Department of Medicine invites the submission of abstracts for poster or oral presentations from faculty with rank at or below assistant professor, clinical research and post-doctoral fellows, medical residents, and graduate students. Participants will have the option of getting their poster printed by the Department free of charge or of printing their own posters.
