Department of Medicine Annual Research Day

April 29-30, 2019

We are pleased to announce the 17th Annual Department of Medicine Research Day will be held on April 29-30, 2019. Our event will showcase clinical resident research on April 29 at the University Club, and junior faculty, fellows and graduate student research on April 30 in the Biomedical Science Tower lobby. Dr. Vivian S. Lee, President of Health Platforms for Verily Life Sciences, an Alphabet Company, will join us as a keynote speaker.

Our annual event uses oral and poster presentations to highlight current research conducted by trainees and junior faculty in the Department of Medicine. This event celebrates the breadth and depth of research conducted by our junior colleagues. As a testament to the enthusiasm around this event, the number of abstracts has increased by 49% over the past five years. Senior faculty from across the University lead small group poster discussions during the 2-day event and awards are given to the highest rated posters.

Faculty with rank at or below assistant professor, clinical research and post-doctoral fellows, medical residents, and graduate students are encouraged to submit abstracts. From the submitted abstracts, eight oral presenters will be selected. The remaining abstract participants will be required to prepare a poster that will be on display at one of the three poster sessions. Participants will have the option of getting their poster printed by the Department free of charge or printing their own posters.

Research Day happenings will be posted to social media. Be sure to tag us at #PittResearchDay2019 on Facebook @PittDeptofMed, Twitter @PittDeptofMed, and Instagram pittdeptofmed!
