College of Medicine Research Forum Set For Nov. 4

Graduate student Joseph Otto explains his project to Dr. Donna Cioffi, associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the  University of South Alabama College of Medicine, during last year's research forum.
The 10th annual University of South Alabama College of Medicine Research Forum will be held Nov. 4, 2016, at the Medical Sciences Building on USA's main campus. The deadline for abstract submission is Oct. 7, 2016.

The Research Forum provides a venue for researchers from the College of Medicine and the Mitchell Cancer Institute to present their work to the university’s biomedical community. “Since the Forum’s inception, we have seen many new ideas generated, as well as new collaborations develop among our community,” said Dr. Cioffi, assistant professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at USA.

The forum consists of two sessions - the morning session for oral presentations in the first floor auditorium, and the afternoon session for poster presentations in the second floor south hallway. Lunch will be served in the Joseph Bitzer Conference Room.

Participation is required for all basic medical science graduate students in their second year and beyond.

In addition to graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, clinical fellows, residents and junior faculty are encouraged to participate.

Travel awards will be given for the two overall best presentations: one for graduate students and one for postdoctoral fellows. These awards are to be used for travel to national or international meetings.

The event is co-sponsored by the USA College of Medicine and the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute.
