The Graduate Student Research Forum is an annual, daylong event sponsored by the Graduate Student Association. The Forum involves oral and poster presentations of student-conducted research, which provides students with an opportunity to present their research to colleagues, faculty and staff of New York Medical College, and the scientific community in the tri-state area. Funds needed to support this event come in part from local corporations. This event has, over the years, greatly increased the visibility and prestige of the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences’ graduate students within the College.
The 30th Annual Graduate Student Research Forum was held on Tuesday, March 20, 2018. Jeanette Sutherland, Ph.D. ’11, M.S. ’06, a research associate in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Weill Cornell Medical College, returned to campus to moderate the day’s activities. The GSRF was capped off with a keynote presentation by physician-scientist Richard White, M.D., Ph.D., head of the Richard White Lab at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Read more...
