The 33rd Annual Medical Student Research Day (MSRD) is Wednesday, October 10, 2018, from 12:15 - 4:00 pm. This program was conceived and initiated by medical students to show the faculty and other students the types of research activities carried out by medical students.
Any Wake Forest medical student who has completed a research project during the past
year is encouraged to participate. MSRD is a requirement for those who participated in the Medical Student
Research Program and the Maya Angelou Summer Research Program.
MSRD begins with a keynote address in Babcock Auditorium by a prominent biomedical researcher followed by a poster session in Commons where the students present the results of their research. Posters are judged and prizes are awarded at the closing ceremony.
Six awards are given to medical students with outstanding research posters. These include:
- Overall - First Prize
- Overall - Second Prize
- Overall - Third Prize
- Translational Science - T1: Bench to Bedside
- Translational Science - T2: Bedside to Community
- Meredith Award for Outstanding Health Equity Research
Posters will be judged according to the following criteria:
- Clarity of presentation
- Scientific approach
- Depth of knowledge
- Your role in the research
