"Using Drosophila to discover mechanisms by which the intestinal epithelium restricts viral infection"
COMMUNITY-DRIVEN RESEARCH DAY encourages collaboration between researchers and community based organizations (CBOs) and community groups who have questions that they are interested in answering about health literacy, healthy weight, and healthy behaviors. Through an interactive poster session, CBOs and community groups will highlight their questions to program participants who will include area non-profits, community groups, public sector partners, and researchers from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, The University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, Drexel University, and other local academic institutions. CBOs, community groups, academic researchers, and students will be able to meet and discuss potential, mutually-beneficial collaborations.
