Penn medical students - this is a wonderful opportunity to share your research with fellow students.  The Deans, other faculty and staff will also be in attendance and are looking forward to learning more about the research students are conducting.

First and second prizes will be awarded for top abstracts submitted in each category.  Winners will be announced by the Dean at Research Day, and at graduation (in the year the winners graduate).  It's also a great honor for your C.V. and Dean's letter!

PARTICIPATION GUIDELINES

Research Day 2008

ONE abstract per student may be submitted.

A student can't submit the same abstract and poster that he/she submitted for a previous Penn Med Research Day competition.

A student must present a poster on Research Day in order to compete for a prize.  Awards are determined by the quality of the abstract AND ability to participate on Research Day.  Therefore, a student unavailable to present a poster on Research Day is ineligible to compete for a prize.  A student who is unavailable to attend Research Day is still encouraged to submit an abstract for the abstract book which will be distributed on Research Day.
