Research Day

EVMS’ 33rd Annual Research Day is Friday, Oct. 15, and content is now available to view online. This year’s virtual event includes more than 150 poster presentations and gives young investigators the opportunity to exchange ideas and information with peers and colleagues in an informal, one-on-one format made available through a poster session.

Research Day 2021 consists of asynchronous content (available now) and a synchronous component to be held on Research Day via BlueJeans and Zoom.

Asynchronous: Research Day participants and viewers are encouraged to watch presentations of interest prior to Research Day and to make note of any questions which arise while viewing. On Research Day, viewers will have the opportunity to ask their questions of the poster presenters during a live, virtual Q&A session. The EVMS campus community is highly encouraged to participate.

Synchronous: On Research Day, viewers will be able to tune-in virtually for live oral presentations, an interactive poster Q&A session and the presentation of poster awards. The day opens with a keynote presentation, “The 40-Year Pandemic: Emergence, Therapy, Cure? of HIV,” by Janice Clements, PhD, Professor of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology, Professor of Faculty Affairs and Vice Dean for Faculty at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Dr. Clements’ presentation will be followed by five Research Day platform presentations. Viewers will then be able to join the poster Q&A sessions on Zoom to interact with any of the more than 150 poster presenters to ask questions about the pre-recorded presentations of their research projects.

The event will close with the presentation of poster awards.

Research Day content, BlueJeans and Zoom connection information, and a detailed schedule can be found on the Research Day website.
