This event provides an educational forum for our residents and fellows to present clinical and basic science research. Oral presentations and posters will reflect the wide range of research underway at Kellogg.

Program Description

At the 36th Annual Research Day, you will hear about the latest findings from research underway at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center.

Kellogg fellows, medical students and residents will present papers based on their most recent clinical and basic science research. A brief question and answer session will follow each presentation.

Oral presentations will be presented from the podium in the Kellogg Eye Center’s auditorium, but with a very limited, physically distanced audience consisting of the presenters, moderators, awards committee and research mentors.

The presentations will be broadcasted live for attendees to view remotely. The poster sessions will be pre-recorded and judged prior to Research Day. The recordings will be made available for on-demand viewing as well with more details to come.
