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.
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 email@example.com.
Research Career Development Award
We will also be accepting applications for two different $25,000 career development award(s) this year: one for junior faculty, as in the past, the Research Career Development Award (RCDA) to support early meritorious research programs; and a second, the Mentored Resident Research Development Award (MRRDA) for residents and their mentors to support laboratory research experience. You’ll find links to the Instructions for both awards below. The deadline for submission of applications is Friday, March 27, 2015 at 6:00 pm. Applications are to be submitted electronically to Ms. Angela Avery at firstname.lastname@example.org.
