30th Iowa Medical Student Research Day to be held at UIHC

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The 30th University of Iowa Medical Student Research Day, sponsored by the Iowa Student Medical Research Club, will be April 13-14 in the department of internal medicine's Bean Conference Room, SE301 General Hospital, UI Hospitals and Clinics.

Initiated in 1970 by Francois M. Abboud, M.D., professor and head of internal medicine, the event provides medical students the opportunity to present their own research, compete for monetary awards and receive constructive feedback from an audience of interested faculty, staff and fellow students.

"Faculty attendance, if only to one or two presentations, will aid our effort to add a new dimension to the medical school experience," said Ken Richardson, a third-year M.D./Ph.D. student and one of the organizers of the event.

More than 30 medical students are expected to present their basic or clinical research projects during the program. Presentations will be given from 1-6 p.m.

A list of the students and their presentation titles is available on the Student Research Day web site at For any further information, contact Richardson via e-mail at
