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 Joseph Garcia, Lieutenant Governor of the State of Colorado. Before he was elected Lieutenant Governor, Garcia was president of Colorado State University - Pueblo. In this role, he served as co-chair of the Governor's P-20 Education Task Force, as Chair of the Western Interstate Commission on Higher Education (WICHE), and was on the Board of Trustees for the Higher Learning Commission for the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Garcia now serves in dual roles as both the Lieutenant Governor of the State of Colorado and as the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Higher Education. As Lieutenant Governor, Joe oversees the Education Leadership Council, amongst other programs.
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!
