Department of Pathology Young Investigators' Day

Purpose:
The goal of this event is to provide a forum for scientific and personal interactions between trainees and faculty in the divisions and laboratories of the Department of Pathology. This event will highlight the high quality and variety of research training and research being performed in our department and will foster a sense of mutual interest and purpose.

Eligibility:
All residents, fellows and students in the Department of Pathology are invited to submit abstracts and to display their research at the Poster Session. Trainees who have presented or will be presenting their work (in either poster or slide format) at a national meeting are required to participate. The period covered is April, 2015- March, 2016.

Presentations:
The scope of presentations may include preliminary data to work already presented/published in Clinical Research, Translational Research, and Basic Research. All work will be presented in poster format. Platform Presentations should be presented as simple poster (i.e. printed copies of slides).

Upon recommendation of the panel of faculty judges, a prize for outstanding scientific contributions in clinical research, translational research, and in basic research will be awarded to the individuals whose posters are judged to be the most outstanding examples of high quality research and excellent presentation. A modest cash prize and certificate will be presented to the winners at the Pathology Annual Awards Ceremony on Thursday, April 27, 2017.
