Research Day enhances the awareness of research being undertaken in the biomedical field within the EVMS community. It gives student investigators the opportunity to exchange ideas and information with peers and colleagues. Download the full Research Day 2022 Program (PDF).

The Opening Remarks, Keynote Speaker and Platform Presentations were held in Waitzer Hall and streamed on the Research Day homepage. Following the Platform Presentations, two in-person poster sessions were held in Waitzer Hall.

Attendees were encouraged to view recorded versions of each participant’s poster presentation on the Research Day homepage prior to the event and develop questions for presentations of interest to bring to the in-person poster session.

EVMS Research would like to thank Fisher Scientific for participating in Research Day 2022. The Brickell Medical Sciences Library celebrates scholarly output from faculty who published, presented at a conference, or provided a poster session in 2021.
