Research Forum

Vanderbilt  University  Medical Center’s Research Forum provides an opportunity for non-faculty VUMC personnel to present research conducted at Vanderbilt. This Forum is open to all   Vanderbilt  University House Staff and Medical Students.

Research must have been performed at Vanderbilt. Unpublished work is eligible and encouraged. Work already published, or presented at another meeting, is also eligible and encouraged. All submitted abstracts are published in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center Research Forum book.

Abstracts are reviewed and selected for either an oral or a poster presentation by a panel of Vanderbilt School of Medicine faculty members who are actively involved in clinical and basic science research. There are three abstracts selected for oral presentation. After the oral presentations at the Forum, the best overall project will be awarded an Elliot V. Newman Award.

The Grant W Liddle Award, which honors a faculty member who demonstrates exemplary leadership in the promotion of scientific research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, is presented annually at the Forum.
