UC Hosts 8th Annual Internal Medicine Research Symposium

The University of Cincinnati (UC) Department of Internal Medicine in the College of Medicine hosted its eighth annual research symposium Friday, April 5, 2019, in the CARE/Crawley Atrium. Trainees submitted 38 posters and each trainee had an identified mentor. The theme for the event was “Building and Fostering Research for Discovery, Innovation and Impact.” “This year’s symposium attracted overwhelming support from faculty and staff,” explains Gregory Rouan, MD, chair of the Department of Internal Medicine. “Forty-five faculty volunteered to judge trainee research posters while staff submitted seven posters in the basic and clinical research categories. Our keynote speaker offered a thought-provoking address that was well attended.” Rouan also offered thanks to all symposium participants and attendees and to Carl Fichtenbaum, MD, associate chair for translational research, and Sakthivel Sadayappan, PhD, associate chair for basic research, both in the Department of Internal Medicine, for their roles in organizing the event. The keynote speaker was Robert Siliciano, MD, PhD, professor of medicine at John Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. Siliciano’s address was titled “Curing HIV Infection: Going Beyond N=1.” The Department of Internal Medicine has long served as an incubator for discovery and scientific advancement at the university and comprises nine divisions with more than 280 faculty as clinicians, scientists and investigators. The department is responsible for $86.9 million in research funding, including $10.3 million in new awards during the 2018 fiscal year.
