Research Day 2015

The UF department of surgery’s Research Day 2015 will be held on Wednesday, April 15, 2015.

Application and Submission Information

Research Day will have both oral and poster presentations submitted by faculty, house staff, post-doctoral fellows and students. We will divide the accepted abstracts into ORAL presentations (10 minutes), QUICK-SHOT oral-poster presentations (5 minutes), and ORAL POSTER presentations (3 minutes).

The Morbidity/Mortality Conference, Grand Rounds (Lester Dragstedt Lecture) as well as the oral and quick-shot presentations will continue to be held in the North Tower, Room 6120. However, instead of having posters set up in Founder’s Hall this year, we will hold ORAL POSTER presentations during lunch in the South Tower Auxiliary Conference Center, Room 1204.

Abstracts

We will also be accepting submissions for abstracts. The best basic science and clinical/translational science presentations will be given $500 cash awards. The deadline for submission of abstracts is Friday, March 20, 2015 at 6:00 pm. Abstracts are to be submitted electronically to Ms. Angela Avery at angela.avery@surgery.ufl.edu.
