Physiology Research Symposium

Each research presentation was well received by those in attendance and provoked thoughtful questions from faculty. The half-day conference concluded with closing remarks by Christopher Leonard, Ph.D., interim chair and professor of the Department of Physiology.

“A critical component of scientific inquiry is the opportunity to engage with an informed community who will scrutinize our methods, reasoning, and evidence,” said Dr. Leonard. “Our annual research symposium provides this opportunity for our talented students and fellows who presented their ongoing research, in various stages of development, to the entire physiology community. This was a great opportunity for everyone to catch up with our neighbor’s work and to provide feedback to help advance their science. I want to thank all the participants whose contributions made this a vibrant and successful event, especially Marcello Rota, Ph.D., associate professor of physiology, and Jeanne Chamas for their outstanding efforts in organizing the symposium.”
