Attn Faculty: Serve as a judge for Research Day on November 9th

Get involved with Health Sciences Research Day!

The annual MU HSRD provides an intellectual forum for original research and educational innovations by undergraduate, medical, nursing, and health professions students, as well as pre/post-doctoral trainees and residents working with faculty in the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Health Professions.  The event will take place in the Acuff Atrium and the gallery of the new Medical Education Building on November 9, 2017 9-11 AM and/or 1-3 PM. We are anticipating a record number of poster presentations this year and the School of Medicine Research Council encourages YOU to participate as a poster judge to provide a positive learning experience for our trainees. Your participation in HSRD is an excellent opportunity to explore the breadth of research being conducted in Health Sciences at Mizzou AND to network with faculty across the Health Sciences. New and Junior faculty are strongly encouraged to participate.

We are implementing a host of new initiatives to HSRD 2017—including short oral presentations by our Deans’ Award Winners, expansion into our brand new PCCLC gallery, and some surprises that you don’t want to miss!  Our goal is to recruit 100 faculty to serve as poster judges. Each poster will be visited by two faculty judges.  Please consider volunteering to judge one or both of the poster sessions described below.

Category I (9-11AM) – Undergraduate and Medical Students (including summer research fellows)

  • Section A: Clinical Science (involving human participants)
  • Section B: Basic Science

Category II (1-3PM) – Graduate Students/Postdoctoral Research Fellows, Medical Fellows and Residents

  • Section A: Clinical Science (involving human participants)
  • Section B: Basic Science

If you have not already signed up, please inform Debbie Taylor taylord@health.missouri.edu of your willingness to serve as a judge and include: the time of day (Category) for which you are available, and the Section (Clinical or Basic) that is most in line with your expertise.  We thank you in advance.  For those faculty unable to commit to judging posters, please attend the sessions to view the extraordinary work being conducted in the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Health Professions at MU.

Special Competition

The School and the Department with the highest ratio of judges to eligible faculty will earn “bragging rights” for HSRD 2017.
