The University of Colorado School of Medicine is holding our Department of Medicine (DOM) Research Day on November 22, 2013 (Friday), with the theme “Breakthroughs Across Divisions”. This projected 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.
Registration has closed, thank you to those who have submitted abstracts. A diverse panel of judges will select no more than 10 abstracts for talks and 1 Best of Division Junior Faculty Lecture. Awards will be given for best poster in the student, house staff and post-doctoral fellow categories.
The 2013 DOM Research Day keynote address will be given by distinguished translational researcher Robert M. Califf, MD, Director of the Translational Medicine Institute, Vice Chancellor for Clinical and Translational Research, Professor of Cardiology at Duke University School of Medicine. Dr. Califf has led some of the best-known clinical trials and health outcomes studies in cardiovascular medicine and has published over 1,000 peer reviewed original articles in collaboration with his colleagues. He is currently the 7th most frequently cited author in the field of medicine globally according to the Institute for Scientific Information. He is considered a leader in the fields of quality of care, technology development and health policy. (dowload link: Dr. Califf's CV)
