Coming soon: The 25th USF Health Research Day is Feb. 20

Mark your calendar for Friday, Feb. 20, for this year’s USF Health Research Day.

This year’s event – held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the USF Marshall Student Center – marks the 25th anniversary of the annual effort to bring together USF’s emerging scientists and showcase their newest research.


The day-long program includes presentations from students, trainees, staff, and faculty researchers from across USF Health, USF and our affiliate partners. Always a popular event, last year’s USF Health Research Day saw more than 700 attendees review the nearly 360 poster presentations filling the Marshall Center Ballroom.

Plan to stay for the Roy H. Behnke, MD, Distinguished Lecture at noon in the Oval Theatre. This year’s keynote speaker is David Swerdlow, MD, medical epidemiologist and associate director for Science at the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. An expert in infectious disease, his talk is titled “What are the critical epidemiologic questions that need to be answered at the start of an epidemic:  What we learned from Influenza A (H1N1) and MERS and how that applies to the Ebola outbreak”

Few other events bring together USF’s rising star researchers better than the annual USF Health Research Day. Please make the effort to visit and speak with some of the brightest researchers across all USF.
