Ochsner's Annual Research Day
Research Day is an annual May event that showcases the biomedical research of investigators within the Ochsner Health System. This group includes students of the University of Queensland-Ochsner Clinical School, as well as postdoctoral fellows, scientists, clinical residents and fellows, nurses, and pharmacists. The daylong event includes plenary sessions, a noon keynote address, a poster display, and an evening networking session with hors d'oeuvres and cocktails in the Brent House Atrium.
Research Day gives clinicians and scientists in multiple disciplines the opportunity to cross-fertilize their scientific thinking and to establish collaborations. The event also provides opportunities for collegial discussion and the renewal of academic friendships.
In addition, the investigators’ presentations give the Ochsner community an appreciation for the complexity and strengths of the institution's academic activities.
