Research office opens online submissions for Student Research Summit

Student Research Summit LogoSchool of Medicine students planning to participate in the annual Health Sciences Research Summit on April 26 at the UMKC Student Union can now submit their abstracts through an online portal.

Abstracts and posters must be submitted to the School of Medicine’s Office of Research Administration through the online portal by March 17.

A School of Medicine poster template and complete poster guidelines are also available online through the Office of Research Administration.

School of Medicine students will again join students from the schools of Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing, Biological Sciences, Engineering and Arts & Science at the UMKC Student Union in the research summit. This is the sixth year that each of the schools are participating in the program at one venue on the Volker Campus.

The event provides the UMKC health sciences students the opportunity to display posters that highlight their research efforts and fosters collaboration across disciplines and schools that are generating economic, health, education and quality-of-life benefits for the Kansas City community.

The School of Medicine sponsors individual awards for medical students and its graduate students. Thirty-two students from the School of Medicine’s M.D. and Allied Health programs presented 34 posters at last year’s research summit.
