Join us on Friday, April 24th for the 14th Annual Department of Medicine Research Symposium to celebrate our research efforts across the department. This event will bring together researchers from all divisions and provide an opportunity to share exciting new findings, facilitate scientific exchange, and identify potential new collaborations.

Abstract submissions are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 20, 2020. All abstracts will be accepted for poster presentations and included in our Annual Research Symposium Booklet. On the day of the symposium, each presenter will have 10 minutes to present their work to the judges.

All members of the Department, including Junior Faculty, Fellows, Residents Postdocs, Graduate Students, and Medical Students are encouraged to participate.

The event will include both oral and poster presentations as well as a keynote address from Jean Bennett, M.D., Ph.D., F.M. Kirby Professor of Ophthalmology, University of Pennsylvania.

Awards will be given at the conclusion of the event to recognize the most outstanding presentations of the day. Research and scholarship awards will also be given.
