Medical Student Research Forum

About the NYMC School of Medicine's Medical Student Research Forum

Held each year in February, the Medical Student Research Forum (MSRF) is a way to promote student research and to provide an opportunity for medical students to present and share their findings with the College community. It features a full day of oral presentations and poster sessions in basic science and clinical science categories. An afternoon keynote address is given by a distinguished guest speaker. Past speakers have included Nobel laureates and other leading scientists.

The MSRF began in 1997 based on the belief that a fundamental understanding of the relationship between medical research and the practice of medicine can enable physician-scientists to better serve patients and the community.

Several student projects presented at past forums have been candidates for drug patents, scientific articles, and the application of new technology and medical techniques.
