RESEARCH PARTNERSHIPS

RESEARCH DAYS AT USU

We take utmost pride in promoting and highlighting research by students and postdoctoral fellows at USU and its affiliate institutions through Research Days.

Research Days celebrates the complementary roles that basic science, medicine, nursing, dental, public health, and behavioral sciences play in health promotion. Each year, over 200 research abstracts are submitted and represent over 15 areas of science. Poster presentations, invited speakers, and panels showcase USU’s special role in civilian, military, and public health research initiatives across the health sciences.

Research Days serves to inform the local scientific community, collaborative institutions, and other federal agencies about significant research projects conducted across the health sciences at USU and its affiliates. This annual event formally encompasses student oral and poster presentation sessions, invited lectures from distinguished speakers, and an awards ceremony celebrating postdocs, graduate students, and early career investigators.
