Research Day

Research Day offers students and researchers at LSU Health Sciences Center a public forum for presenting their research and to receive valuable feedback from their colleagues.  It is also an opportunity for them to see how their research compares to that of their peers in a competitive arena.  Each year, awards are given for projects that demonstrate outstanding and innovative research with the potential for contributing to the advancement of medical science and health care.
