Advancements in the field of biomedical science result from an intense effort and exchange of ideas. Discoveries that someday may be translated into treatments and cures were displayed at PCOM’s annual Research Day, an event designed to foster awareness of ongoing research and promote collaboration among researchers.
Students, residents, faculty and staff presented posters describing their research on topics such as ways to reduce the use of opioid pain medication; family planning in refugee settings; and the role of infection in the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
Prizes were awarded to the day’s top research projects. This year’s winners were:
The David Miller, DO '60 Memorial Endowed Research Day Awards:
The Camille DiLullo, PhD, Excellence in Research Awards:
PCOM Library Young Investigators Award:
