Student Research Forum The Student Research Forum (SRF) exists to serve the students at the University of Kansas Medical Center, to advance their research and to bolster their professional development. The forum provides a public stage for the presentation, assessment, and discussion of their scientific investigations as well an opportunity to recognize and award exceptional research efforts. The forum will provide exposure to talks from world-class researchers and promote interdisciplinary collaboration between fields, departments, professional schools and universities to foster high-quality, innovative research that will transform our present scientific understanding and ultimately improve the lives of people in the state of Kansas and throughout the world.
Each year the Graduate Student Council sponsors the Student Research Forum. A multi-day interactive event, the 2021 SRF will be held on April 6-9, 2021. It will showcase research conducted by students from the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Health Professionals, and Graduate Studies. In addition to the student presentations, the SRF features a banquet (April 9, 2021) and the extremely popular A.L. Chapman Keynote Research Lecture scheduled on Thursday, April 8, 2021 at 3p.m. focused on the professional development of attendees.
