Mandell PhD student research showcase: a celebration of student scholarship and research


The Mandell PhD Student Research Showcase will be held April 5–6, 2024.

This annual one-day conference brings together students and faculty advisors and mentors from all tracks and years of the Health Sciences PhD program. The conference offers a unique forum for PhD students to present their research before a panel of judges, faculty and student colleagues and attendees and to network and collaborate with other students across the cohorts.

During the multitrack dynamic event, selected abstracts will be presented live and posters displayed. The event is designed to enable students to develop critical science communication skills and interact in engaging breakout sessions on developing their science, said Giselle Carnaby, PhD, MPH, FASHA, program director of the PhD in Health Sciences program and Mandell Endowed Professor.

Health Sciences PhD students are invited to competitively share their research and creative activity in four award categories, including:

  • Best oral presentation of a research paper by a PhD student ($200)
  • Best poster presentation by the lead PhD student ($200)
  • Best collaboration between a faculty member, senior PhD student and junior PhD student ($300)
  • Travel award to attend a major scientific meeting in the student’s area of interest ($300)

PhD students may register by filling out this form.

The program includes an optional evening gathering on April 5 ahead of the full-day program at the Academic Learning and Teaching Center that begins at 8 a.m. on April 6 and includes breakfast pastries and lunch.
