The John B. Graham Medical Student Research Society is actively recruiting SOM faculty, fellows, residents, and post-doctoral fellows to serve as judges of Research Poster Presentations for Student Research Day the afternoon of Friday, November 12th, 2021. Please consider volunteering your time for this important day to celebrate the hard work of many students within the School of Medicine. All are also welcome to attend the keynote lecture by Dr. Emery Brown!
The John B. Graham Student Research Society is writing to ask you to save the date for UNC School of Medicine’s 54th annual Student Research Day, which will take place on Friday, November 12, 2021. Historically, this has been a symposium-style event highlighting the research achievements of UNC medical students, giving them the opportunity to present their work and discuss it with faculty and fellow students. Due to the SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic, the event will be held virtually, with breakout rooms for presenters to showcase their work via live video sessions. Student presentations will cover research projects in the fields of basic science, clinical science, and public health. We are additionally looking for faculty, fellow, resident and scientist judges to help make the day a success. Judges will provide critical, formative feedback to students in the School of Medicine, which will help them further develop their scientific thinking and presentation skills.
The schedule of the day is as follows:
12:00-1:00 PM: Landes Merrimon Lecture by Dr. Emery Brown
2:45-3:45 PM: Student oral presentations
3:45-5:15 PM: Student poster session
We are excited to host Dr. Emery Brown to be our speaker for this year’s Landes Merrimon Lecture. Dr. Brown is a neuroscientist, anesthesiologist, and statistician with Professorships at both Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. All are welcome to attend this lecture.
The role of the judges will be to evaluate both the quality of the students’ research and the effectiveness with which the students present their research.
If you are interested in serving as a judge, please use the following form to submit your information and judging preferences:
