Annual Research Day scheduled for May 21


The department of medicine will highlight clinical and basic medical research at its fifth annual Research Day. The event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 21.

This year's distinguished speaker is Dr. Laurie Glimcher, the Irene Heinz Given Professor of Immunology at the Harvard School of Public Health. Dr. Glimcher will present her lecture "Transcription Factors that Control Lineage Commitment in Lymphocytes."

"Dr. Glimcher, a widely recognized physician-scientist, is noted for her seminal contributions to basic immunology. May 21 promises to be an exciting day for us all," said Dr. Robert A.Clark, professor and chair of medicine.

Research Day also features a "Women in Science" panel discussion and poster and oral presentations from faculty, fellows and medical residents. Awards will be presented to the best posters in each of these categories.

"Research Day represents a wonderful opportunity to recognize the excellence and scope of the scientific contributions of trainees and faculty," Dr. Clark said. "This year's celebration will build upon the strong momentum and tradition of the last several years."
