2020 Health Sciences Research Day (MU)
More than 200 research projects were virtually displayed during the 2020 Health Sciences Research Day. The annual event showcased research from MU undergraduate, medical and nursing students, as well as pre- and post-doctoral trainees.
The event featured a range of health research, including immunology, nutrition and exercise physiology, diabetes, ophthalmology, orthopaedics and health psychology. Students displayed their work through prerecorded research presentations via CrowdCompass during the day-long event. This year’s keynote speaker was George P. Smith, PhD, Curators' Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Biological Sciences and Nobel laureate.
“The projects shared during Health Sciences Research Day truly show the depth and breadth of the research that is taking place at the University of Missouri on a daily basis,” said William Fay, MD, senior associate dean for research at the MU School of Medicine. “It’s inspiring to glimpse the kind of research that our current and future scientists will one day use to improve lives. The day provides a forum to celebrate the excellent work in research and mentoring that takes place on our campus.”Source: Health Sciences Research Day website (viewed December 11, 2020) (https://medicine.missouri.edu/news/research-innovation-honored-health-sciences-research-day)
