The University of Colorado School of Medicine is holding our second annual Department of Medicine Research Day on October 24th, 2014 (Friday). This annual event aims not only to showcase our diverse and exciting achievements in both basic and translational research the past year, but also to encourage lively discussions and multidisciplinary collaborations across diverse fields of medicine. It is inevitable that patient care informs basic, clinical and epidemiological research and vice versa, and we hope to stimulate this critical exchange through this forum.
Students, fellows, residents and junior faculty are highly encouraged to submit abstracts for presentation through the online form. The deadline for abstract submissions is on October 3, 2014, 5 p.m. A diverse panel of judges will review the abstracts.
