Graduate Student Research Forum
The Graduate Student Research Forum is an annual scientific event hosted by the College of Medicine Office of Research and Graduate Education, the Committee on Graduate Education and the Health Sciences Graduate Association.
All graduate students in the college are invited to submit a five minute presentation and then met their judges in a "Question & Answer" Zoom room.
The posters are judged by faculty and postdoctoral assistants and awards are given to the students with the highest scores.
A keynote speaker is invited by and voted on by the students. The speaker who receives the most votes is invited to attend. This year's speaker was Kristin Parent, PhD from Michigan State University. Her talk was on “Deciphering virus entry mechanisms: from bacteriophages to giant viruses". In conjunction with this event, the Richard Akeson Award for Excellence in Graduate Education is presented to a faculty member who best exemplifies outstanding graduate teaching and mentoring. This year's Akeson Award winner was TBA.
Faculty are nominated by the students, and the faculty member who receives the most votes is presented with the award during the awards ceremony.
