Student Research Day- Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Student Research Day is a major event at the Yale School of Medicine because of the M.D. thesis which has been a requirement for graduation from Yale Medical School for over 160 years. All classes and conferences in all departments are cancelled for the afternoon.

The purpose of Student Research Day is to provide a forum for graduating medical students to present their work to a university-wide audience of interested faculty members and students. The activities will begin at 12:00 noon in the Anlyan Center Lobby  (300 Cedar Street) with Yale Medical Students presenting the results of their thesis research work at a scientific poster session.  In addition, five oral presentations of prize winning theses are presented in a Plenary Scientific Session. All presentations will be in the Anlyan Center Auditorium (N107). All of the events are free and open to interested persons.

The Farr Lectureship has become the most highly visible and honored lectureship at Yale Medical School and is the culminating event of Student Research Day. Previous Farr Lecturers have included Arnold Relman, Anthony S. Fauci, Sidney Altman, Sydney Brenner, Joseph L. Goldstein, Francis S. Collins, Judah Folkman, Alfred G. Gilman, Robert J. Lefkowitz, and Rick Lifton, Paul Greengard, Edward J. Benz, Jr., Story C. Landis, Arthur Horwich, Jeffrey Friedman, Jack Elias, David Nathan, Stuart Orkin, Lewis Landsberg,  George Lister,  Jeffrey Flier, Elizabeth Nabel, James Rothman, Brian Kobilka, and Nancy Andrews.
