6th Annual Research Symposium in Surgical Sciences
May 3, 2017
The Department of Surgery’s Annual Research Symposium in Surgical Sciences brings together the Department’s faculty, project scientists, residents, research fellows, post-doctoral scholars, and medical students who are engaged and interested in the Department’s research enterprise. The meeting embraces the breadth and wide impact of surgical sciences: from research dissecting the molecular response to tissue injury and inflammation; to the deployment of next generation methods to enhance and accelerate repair and regeneration; to improving surgical outcomes through technological innovation, clinical research, clinical trials and health services research. This year, the meeting is headlined by Professor Allan D. Kirk, the David C. Sabiston, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Surgery, Pediatrics and Immunology at the Duke University School of Medicine. Professor Kirk will deliver the morning’s Grand Rounds lecture and in the evening, close a day of poster and oral presentations with a lecture on Science and the Surgeon. As in past years, presentations will be selected to represent the scope of research in the Department’s 12 divisions.
