The University of Colorado Department of Medicine will hold its fourth annual Research Day on Friday, October 14, 2016. 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.
Students, residents, post-docs/fellows, and junior faculty in the Department of Medicine are highly encouraged to submit abstracts for presentation and participation in a poster session through the online form at left. The deadline for abstract submissions is October 1, 2016, at 5 p.m. A diverse panel of judges will review the abstracts and select top submissions in each category for oral presentation.
The 2016 DOM Research Day Keynote Address will be given by Charles A. Dinarello, MD.
Dr. Dinarello is Professor of Medicine and Immunology at the CU School of Medicine, and Professor of Experimental Medicine at Radboud University in the Netherlands.
Dr. Dinarello serves on the editorial boards of several scientific journals and has published over 600 original research articles and 250 reviews and book chapters on cytokines, particularly on Interleukin-1, Interleukin-18, and related cytokines. He has trained over 50 investigators, many of whom are recognized experts in their fields. The Institute for Scientific Information listed Dr. Dinarello as the world's 4th most-cited scientist during the 20 years from 1983-2002.
Dr. Dinarello was elected to the United States National Academy of Sciences, and in 2011, he became a foreign member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. For his contributions to the field of cytokines and medicine, he received the Squibb Award (USA), Ernst Jung Prize in Medicine (Germany), Chirone Prize (Italian National Academy of Medicine), Carol Nachman Prize (Germany), Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashdid al Madktoum Award (United Arab Emirates), Beering Prize (USA), Albany Prize in Medical Research (USA), Crafoord Prize of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (Sweden), Paul Ehrlich Prize (Germany), Bonfils-Stanton Prize (USA), the Novartiz Prize in Clinical Immunology (Switzerland) and the Bonazinga Award (USA). Dr. Dinarello donates the monies from prizes to the Interleukin Foundation, a charitable foundation which he established in 2009 to support research on cytokines.
The DOM Research Day will be held from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Full agenda coming soon.
