2021 Medical Research Day

Welcome to the MRD2021 Virtual Poster Website!

This is the 32nd year for the Medicine Research Day, and we are proud to have over 50 abstracts submitted this year.

There are two categories, Translational Research and Clinical Vignettes, which come from our Students, Residents, Fellows, and Faculty.

Each abstract has a poster that can be viewed and for many a 5-8 minute video presentation that can be accessed by all.

Many thanks to all who contributed to MRD 2021 in our first virtual format!
