YCCI will host the Second Annual All Scholar Day Retreat on Friday March 1st. The program will begin at 12:00 PM with poster presentations from scholars in the lobby of the Anlyan Center. This will be followed by talks from Ray Dolan, MD, FRS, Harlan Krumholz, MD, and John Williams, PhD. Open to all students, trainees, scholars and faculty at Yale who are participating or interested in clinical or translational research, this half-day event will also feature poster presentations from Scholars, as well as short oral presentations from a number of Scholars and trainees. All attendees will have the opportunity to submit an abstract for a poster or oral presentation. A committee will select the top abstract from a student, a postdoctoral fellow and a junior faculty member, each of whom will receive an award of $500 that can be used for travel to a professional conference. Abstracts should be limited to 300 words and sent to Nicholas Licht via email by February 4th. Please contact Nicholas Licht via email email@example.com or phone 203.785.7467 with any questions.
