The event typically features a morning poster session highlighting the findings from a wide range of research projects presented by faculty, postdoctoral scholars, residents, students and staff. The popular lunchtime Roundtable Discussions, led by experts from our Department, focus on a variety of research and career development topics.
The afternoon Speed Dat(a)ing session features presentations by Department of Psychiatry investigators on their latest findings and new sessions featuring our Department researchers that we are excited about offering this year. The awards ceremony at the end of the program recognizes the contributions of faculty and staff to the Department and the research community, and presentation of the Best Poster prizes. Networking opportunities abound on Research Day so that attendees can reconnect with colleagues, meet new people in the research community and share their interests.
We made the difficult decision to cancel the June 4, 2020 Research Day in light of the evolving response to the COVID-19 virus. Although we were not able to gather to celebrate the outstanding research of our Pitt Psychiatry investigators in June, stay tuned! We are working on a special event for Fall 2020 to learn more about the ongoing research in our Department and to network and reconnect with colleagues. Details will be forthcoming as planning progresses.
Please contact Jeanie Knox Houtsinger if you have questions regarding this event.
