2018 Student Research Day


Join us on October 16, 2018 for the this year's Student Research Day.

Event Details

 

Since 1985 Student Research Day has provided an on-campus forum for students to showcase their research pursuits. For many students, the day offers the opportunity to share their dissertation research with their colleagues from other disciplines, engaging in discussion and soliciting feedback.

 

Student Research Day is held in the fall of each year for the students in the Ph.D. program at the Georgetown University Medical Center. The purpose of Student Research Days is to showcase the scientific research efforts of graduate students at Georgetown University.
