Annual Research Day 2014 - April 2, 2014
The School of Graduate Studies is pleased to announce the centerwide ANNUAL RESEARCH DAY on Wednesday, 2 April, 2014. The day will consist of a platform session, two poster sessions, followed by a keynote address, and finally, a dinner for students and faculty.
Gordon M. Shepherd, MD, DPhil, Professor of Neurobiology, Yale University School of Medicine
will present the keynote address "Neurogastronomy: From basic brain science to public policy on obesity." at 4pm.
Presentations are invited from students in the School of Graduate Studies, the College of Medicine, the School of Public Health, the School of Nursing, and the College of Health Related Professions. Medical residents, postdoctoral fellows, and undergraduate students conducting research with Downstate faculty are also encouraged to present their research findings.
Annual Research Day provides an excellent occasion for the entire Downstate community to share the results of their research efforts. Abstracts and applications will be accepted from February 24 to March 14th, 2014.
The instructions are here; the application is here.
The schedule for the day will be as follows:
10:00 am - 12:00 noon Platform Session
12:00 noon – 1:45 pm Poster Session 1
1:45 pm – 2:00 pm Intersession (changing posters)
2:00 pm – 3:45 pm Poster Session 2
4:00 pm – 5:00 pm Keynote Lecture
6:30 pm – 9:30 pm ARD Dinner
Faculty from the campus' colleges will judge the poster presentations. All graduate students past their second year (excluding those students within 6 months of their final thesis defense) are required to make a presentation.
A limited number of travel fellowships will be awarded for the best presentations among those that are judged. Full travel fellowships in the amount of $1,500 and partial fellowships will be awarded. The exact number of awards that will be made this year has yet to be determined. Last year, we awarded 4 full fellowships and 7 partial fellowships. Travel fellowships are to be used to cover costs for the student or resident to present their work at a scientific meeting so long as the student awardee is still enrolled and in good standing in SUNY Downstate Medical Center or the employee awardee is still employed here.
The dinner reservation and costs are here.
We look forward to another exciting day of activities.
