E.J. Van Liere Memorial Convocation & HSC Research Day
The 2014 Annual E.J. Van Liere Memorial Convocation and HSC Research Day will be held Thursday, February 27th & Friday, February 28th, 2014.
If you are an alumni and would like to attend any of the scheduled events, please email Holly Legleiter.
The Van Liere Memorial Convocation events include a selected number of graduate and professional students within the Health Sciences degree programs, as well as others in training programs, selected to give talks on their research. This event is competitive, and winners are awarded monetary prizes.
The HSC Research Day rounds out the events with the Health Science Center’s largest, comprehensive poster session that provides faculty, residents, postdoctoral and clinical fellows, graduate students, and professional program students the opportunity to share their research at the poster session and engage in scientific discussion. This event is open to the Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health.
The speaker in 2013 was Dr. David D. Gutterman. Dr. Gutterman is the Senior Associate Dean and Northwestern Mutual Professor of Cardiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The title of his plenary lecture is "Endothelium-Dependent Dilation in the Human Microcirculation: A Window Into Vascular Health and Disease".
