New to Reserach Day this Year:

Research Blitz
The Research Blitz is open to all trainees.  It is a one minute, one slide presentation outlining your research. If you participate in this event, you must rehearse your presentation.  One minute in not very long to communicate your science!  You must register for this event and be willing to submit your slide a few days prior to the presentation. 

Trainee Presentations
Six trainees will have the opportunity to present a 10 minute presentation.  Participants will be selected from abstracts submitted by Friday, October 7.
