The sixth annual University of South Alabama College of Medicine Research Forum will be held Dec. 13, 2012, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Medical Sciences Building on USA's main campus. The deadline for abstract submission is Nov. 19, 2012.

The forum is an opportunity for graduate students in the Basic Medical Sciences program, postdoctoral fellows, residents, clinical fellows, and new faculty to present their research to the College of Medicine community.

"The forum is important for students because it gives them experience in presenting their work to others, and for faculty and students alike it opens doors for new ideas and collaborations," said Dr. Donna Cioffi, assistant professor of biochemistry at USA.

"In particular, we hope that new projects will be initiated in the area of translational medicine," she added. "The combination of outstanding physicians and scientists makes the environment at USA ideal for development of such project."
