Research Day

We are excited to showcase and celebrate some of the great research happening across UT DRO through the submitted abstracts, oral presentations, and posters for Research Day.  We encourage all of our trainees to submit their abstracts for an opportunity to present their work.  Faculty members please encourage your team to submit their work and distribute this communication as necessary – any trainee supervised by a UT DRO faculty member is eligible to participate.

Research Day will be held on April 21, 2017 from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the Chestnut Conference Centre.
