For two decades, researchers representing the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing and Public Health have displayed their work along the corridors of USF Health for fellow researchers and mentors to review and for faculty judges to critique.

On Feb. 19, nearly 200 faculty, students, and even staff, will once again set up their posters in the pre-dawn light, preparing for the 20th Annual USF Health Research Day.

This year’s program – which includes 196 abstracts, including two from the College of Medicine’s newest program with Lehigh Valley Network – starts at 8 a.m. in the USF Health Rotunda and the College of Nursing atrium and foyer.

Culminating the day is the Roy H. Behnke Disntinguished Lectureship, featuring Jean-Francios Rossignol, MD, PhD, FRSC, who will present “Translational Research: Myth or Reality or the Discovery of the Thiazolides” at 1 p.m. in the USF Health Auditorium.

The outstanding work of eight student researchers will earn them an invitation to present their work in an oral session at 8:30 a.m. that morning (USF Health Auditorium).

Finally, the winning research will be announced at the Awards Ceremony, with a reception to follow.
