Research is vital

July 16, 2012 —

Research is vital, and at DMU students are vital to research.

The Mentored Student Research Program is an excellent opportunity for students to highlight their research findings.

They will present their research on Friday, July 20 in DMU’s Olsen Medical Education Center (better known as the MEC) in an event that’s free and open to the public. It begins with registration at 9:30 a.m., followed by welcome comments at 10 a.m. by Professor Jeffrey Gray, Ph.D., Vice president for Research, director of Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences, and professor of Microbiology and Immunology and Rachel Reimer, Ph.D, Chair of the research and grants committee and assistant professor of Master of Public Health.

Robert Philibert, M.D., Ph.D. Professor of Psychiatry and director of the Psychiatric Genetics Laboratory University of Iowa, will be providing the keynote address on the day of presentations.

We say this often, but our students truly are the best! We invite you to come to enjoy their oral and poster presentations in the MEC and in Ryan Hall 179, 181, 280, 281.
