Health Sciences Research Day

The University of Missouri’s Health Sciences Research Day, held Thursday, Nov. 17, 2016, provides a forum for original research and educational innovations by undergraduate, medical, nursing and health professions students as well as predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees working with faculty in the schools of medicine, nursing, and health professions.

This day-long symposium is filled with poster presentations, with prizes awarded to the three best presentations in each student category. In addition, special Deans’ Awards will be presented for the most outstanding research conducted by trainees from the schools of nursing, health professions and medicine. Holders of academic titles are not eligible for this competition, except through mentoring roles.

The poster sessions will be judged separately for two categories of students. Within each category, there will be two sections as follows: (a) Clinical Science (involving human participants), and (b) Basic Science. Therefore, the categories for separate judging will be as follows:

Category I - Undergraduate students and medical students (including summer research fellows)

  • Section A: Clinical Science (involving human participants)
  • Section B: Basic Science

Category II - Graduate Students/Postdoctoral Research Fellows, Medical Fellows and Residents

  • Section A: Clinical Science (involving human participants)
  • Section B: Basic Science
