Thank you everyone for making our Department of Surgery Research Week 2022 activities a huge success! It was refreshing to connect again in person and celebrate the spirit of our research mission.
We are proud and humbled to have such a broad representation showcasing the work of our scientific community as a multidisciplinary research hub, highlighting the work of our residents, faculty, staff, and community partners. Significant accomplishments across health informatics, translational, clinical, and educational exploration will create our future.
Led by Basic and Translational Research Professor Subree Subramanian, PhD, with Kelli Tourand, Jenni Sullivan, and communications support from Alyssa Dindorf, including members within the Chair's Office, we want to extend our gratitude for their planning efforts. The week's events were also made possible by uplifting our collaborations and support across the Medical School. Thank you for being part of the #ResearchWeek2022 experience!
