Research Days 2021

The Department of Medicine Research Day highlighted the intensity and emphasis of research in the department. The topics were varied from biomedical to clinical to population-based to health services research showing the diversity of research in the department. We were also able to include third-year resident projects.

The presentations were excellent and we would like to thank all of the presenters and attendees. We would also like to congratulate Dr. Michael Prystajecky for receiving the award for the top presentation in the Clinical, population health, and health services research category and Dr. Michael Levin for receiving the award for the top presentation in the biomedical research category.

We look forward to seeing you again at next year’s event.
Dr. Josh Lawson – Director Research DoM
