Research Connections 2017

To reserve a table (faculty & staff), please go to our RSVP page.

 

The third annual Research Connections was held in Light Hall over lunch on Monday, January 31st, 2017. The OMSR sponsored event, was an opportunity for Vanderbilt research departments and centers to informally interface with our medical students about exciting current and future research projects in which they could be involved. First and Second year medical students were able to network with representatives from several varying areas of research, providing valuable connections going forward in the Inquiry Program. Students were able to identify possible mentors to communicate with further regarding their forthcoming Immersion (protected research time).
