The 11th annual University of South Alabama College of Medicine Research Forum will be held Friday, Nov. 17, 2017, at the Medical Sciences Building on USA's main campus. The deadline for abstract submission is Friday, Oct. 20, 2017.
The Research Forum provides a venue for researchers from the College of Medicine and the Mitchell Cancer Institute to present their work to the university’s biomedical community.
“Since the Forum’s inception, we have seen many new ideas generated, as well as new collaborations develop among our community,” said Dr. Donna Cioffi, assistant professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the USA College of Medicine.
The forum consists of two sessions - the morning session for oral presentations in the first floor auditorium, and the afternoon session for poster presentations in the second floor south hallway. Lunch will be served in the Joseph Bitzer Conference Room.
“The poster session in particular is highly interactive and is an excellent opportunity to foster new collaborations,” Dr. Cioffi said.
Participation is required for all basic medical science graduate students in their second year and beyond.
In addition to graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, clinical fellows, residents and junior faculty are encouraged to participate.
“For undergraduate students thinking about graduate school, the forum is a great venue to learn about research and also to talk with current graduate students,” Dr. Cioffi said.
Travel awards will be given for the two overall best presentations: one for graduate students and one for postdoctoral fellows. These awards are to be used for travel to national or international meetings.
The event is co-sponsored by the USA College of Medicine and the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute.
