Research Day is a twice-yearly forum for all medical students at UAG School of Medicine to discuss their findings through the publications of abstracts and oral poster sessions.

The event was held on Friday, October 21st with two distinguished plenary speakers; Hugo Guerrero-Cazares, MD, Ph.D. from Mayo Clinic and Hector Barajas- Martinez Ph.D. from Lankenau Institute for Medical Research, an independent, nonprofit biomedical research center located in suburban Philadelphia, U.S., on the campus of Lankenau Medical Center.

After the plenary sessions were over, they were followed by poster sessions, where students presented their findings.

This event was held as the result of the Research Methods Course with the purpose of increasing public awareness of the value of medical research for advancement in all areas of medicine in the medical field.

Additionally, this event allows students to add to their resumes when applying to top-notch residency programs in the near future. 

A total of 24 research projects were exhibited in front of faculty, staff, and colleagues.

Congratulations to all the students who participated in the event. We would like to announce the top three winners for the Fall 2022 Research Day event for the following research projects:
