Pruitt Research Day

Join us on November 22, 2019 for the 8th Annual Pruitt Research Day!

Pruitt Research Day celebrates the graduate/post-doctoral research being conducted in the department and the larger 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 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.
