Research Day


2019 Research Day


Research Day presentations

Research Day 2019 focused on commercialization, collaboration and biomedical informatics. Dr. Sachin Kheterpal delivered the keynote address followed by several members of UTMB's research faculty and community. 

We thank our vendors who provided educational grants to support Research Day. We also thank everyone who spoke and attended. Without your participation, there would be no Research Day.
