Internal Medicine Research Day
Research Day is a celebration and showcase of the research achievements of our Department’s faculty, residents and students!
Our 3rd annual Research Day has been postponed until fall 2022 - more information will follow as we solidify the updated event details.
2021 Research Showcase
The Department of Internal Medicine held its 2nd annual Research Day on Wednesday, November 10th, 2021 from 10am-4pm, CST in the Ad Astra Room, 5th floor, Health Education Building (campus map).
The event featured Dr. Harvey Alter, MD, Nobel Prize Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, MACP Distinguished NIH Investigator Emeritus, as the plenary and Inaugural Dr. Allan and Judith Cooke Lecture speaker.
Dr. Alter has played a key role in the discovery of two hepatitis viruses, namely hepatitis B virus (HBV) and the non-A, non-B virus, later designated the hepatitis C virus (HCV). In long-term prospective studies, Dr. Alter helped define the natural history of NANB/HCV infection and proved its frequent progression to chronic hepatitis and its evolution to cirrhosis and liver-related mortality.
If you were unable to attend, a recording of Dr. Alter's keynote address can be found below:

All Internal Medicine faculty, residents and fellows are eligible to participate in this research day. Additionally, all medical students with an interest in internal medicine are eligible as well.
A select number of abstracts describing highly impactful research will be selected for a 5 min oral presentation. 16 abstracts will be presented at this year's showcase.
