Calling all Biomedical Researchers!

Mark your calendars for the 2nd Annual Pruitt Research Day to be held on Monday, November 18th, 2013!

Pruitt Research Day will be a celebration of the research being conducted in the department and the BME community. We hold our celebration near the birth date of Dr. J. Crayton Pruitt Sr. whose vision and generosity helped found the department. Dr. Pruitt was always most excited to hear about and discuss the achievements and research being conducted by our students. Dr. Pruitt himself was not only a renowned cardiothoracic surgeon but also an inventor of numerous catheters and instruments for use in cardiovascular surgery that include his co-invention of the Pruitt-Inahara shunt – still one of the world’s most popular shunts used during carotid endarterectomy.  You can read more about Dr. Pruitt on our website here:

Please submit your abstracts online at the link below by 5pm on Friday, October 18th. We will select eight abstracts for presentation as talks in the morning from students who have advanced to PhD candidacy. You must have passed your qualifying exam to be eligible for a talk. All other abstracts will be selected for presentation at the poster session from 1:30-4pm in the afternoon. We look forward to hearing about your exciting biomedical research!
