Department of Medicine Research Day - 2017

The University of Colorado Department of Medicine will hold its fifth annual Research Day on Friday, April 14, 2017. This annual event is designed to showcase our diverse and exciting achievements in both basic and translational research, and 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.

The conference is free of charge, and all members of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus community are welcome to attend. 

In 2017, this event will adopt a shorter, half-day format. The 2017 event will not include a poster session or abstract competition; these parts of Research Day will resume in spring 2018. (Click here to view the abstracts submitted for the 2016 DOM Research Day.)
