The University of Colorado Department of Medicine will hold its third annual Research Day on Friday, October 23, 2015. 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, 2015, at 5 p.m. A diverse panel of judges will review the abstracts and select top submissions in each category for oral presentation.
The 2015 DOM Research Day Keynote Address will be given by John Hickenlooper, the 42nd Governor of the State of Colorado. Mr. Hickenlooper is a former geologist and small business owner. He was elected Mayor of Denver in 2003, and Governor of Colorado in 2010. Since assuming office in 2011, the Governor and his team have worked to ensure that Colorado has a business-friendly climate and is one of the most desirable places to live, work and play. Areas of focus for his administration of particular interest to the University of Colorado medical community have included health care, higher education, and promoting economic growth. His administration has also created the Colorado Innovation Network and provided Advanced Manufacturing Grants to accelerate start-ups and early stage technology businesses. He is also currently the Chairman of the National Governors Association.
The DOM Research Day will be held from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Presentations, lunch and poster session will be held in Education 2 South (Anschutz Medical Campus).
We look forward to seeing you there!
