DOM Annual Research Day 2021

April 27, 2021

We would like to extend a special thank-you to our plenary/oral/poster presenters, judges, special guests, and volunteers who helped to make this year’s event possible. With the challenges faced over this last year due to COVID, a shift towards a completely virtual event would not have been possible without you! We truly appreciate the time and effort you gave to ensuring Research Day’s success.
