Department of Medicine Research Day

NYU Langone’s Department of Medicine hosts an annual Research Day to encourage early career investigators, house staff, and medical students to develop and present research in a highly collaborative and supportive scientific environment.

This event celebrates new advances in biomedical research and reinforces longstanding traditions in the Department of Medicine, which was built on the principles of care, support for diversity of thought, and dedication to the process of discovery. Our 19th Annual Research Day is on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, in the Smilow Research Center at 522 First Avenue.

Students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty may apply to present research during our poster sessions using the Research Day Abstract Submission Form. The submission deadline is March 13, 2020.

2020 Research Day Program

Each year our Research Day program features a keynote lecture from an internationally recognized luminary in academic medicine and short oral presentations from NYU Langone faculty and selected trainees about ongoing research.

This year, Judy Cho, MD, Dean of Translational Genetics, Director of the Charles Bronfman Institute for Personalized Medicine, and Professor of Medicine and Genetics and Genomic Sciences at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, discusses her pioneering research on the genetic factors that underly susceptibility to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Dr. Cho’s laboratory has made importance advances, which include defining the genetic architecture that underlies differentiation of distinct immune cell subsets and differences in the epigenetic landscape of immune cell subsets, as well as their effects in IBD. She is widely recognized for her pioneering research and is a member of the American Society of Clinical Investigation and the National Institutes of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases Advisory Council.

Our program also includes over 150 poster presentations from medical students, house staff, fellows, and junior faculty. Senior investigators are available to consult with early career researchers about their projects in a spirit of collegiality.
