Research Day

The Department of Medicine Research Day was initiated as an opportunity to allow all the Divisions of Medicine to mingle and learn what's going on throughout the department. It has been a successful event focusing on junior faculty and students at poster presentations.

This year's Research Day will be held on Friday, June 15, 2018. It is a catered affair and includes a 1-hour Grand Rounds lecture and two additional plenary lectures. Events will be held in Room 1325 and the Atrium lobby area of the Health Sciences Learning Center

Registration is open to all Department of Medicine members and non-departmental guests (to aid planning, all attendees should register). Submit an abstract by April 27, 2018 (email the completed form to Betty Weiss, research services director).
