This important event provides residents, fellows, and students with the opportunity to showcase their clinical, basic, or translational research efforts. This activity allows faculty, fellows, residents, and students to learn more about the diverse ongoing research in our department.

Restrictions due to ´╗┐COVID-19

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and the use of the Turner Concourse for Vaccine distribution, the 2021 PYID will be held virtually. Unlike the 2020 session however, where participants pre-recorded their presentations, we are happy to announce that this year we will offer a more "in-person" format. We will hold a continuous Zoom meeting where participants will present for attending faculty judges followed by questions/discussion. These will be conducted as one-time "live" individual presentations by each presenter in breakout rooms throughout the day. The 2021 PYID meeting will also include an exciting guest speaker presentation at Noon by Dr. Victor Velculescu.

Please join us for this wonderful annual event to show support for the research of our students and trainees.
