Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher (left) said he took special interest in research projects focused on children’s health during his tour of poster displays at UNT Health Science Center’s annual Research Appreciation Day.
“We need more people to go into public health and solve some of the problems facing the country today,” said Dr. Satcher, who was the keynote speaker for RAD. “These students will be able to make contributions that are really important to society.”
More than 250 posters and oral presentations on a wide range of scientific topics were presented during RAD, an institutional tradition that provides students, faculty and staff with an opportunity to share their work with the campus community and public.
“These students will be able to make contributions that are really important to society.”
Each year a panel of judges selects the top poster and oral presentation in each category and cash prizes are awarded during a ceremony at the end of the day. The Office of Research Development and Commercialization hosted the event.
“Research is such a critical element in medicine.”
More and more clinicians are recognizing how important it is to conduct their own research, said Christina Pham, a TCOM student whose poster focused on leukemia in children.
“Research is such a critical element in medicine,” she said. “And as a future clinician, I believe it is important to have research literacy.”
“Research matters to us, to patients, to physicians, to our families – to really everyone.”
Carlson Fairbanks, a resident at John Peter Smith Hospital, said he studied 1,000 x-rays for the research his team presented on hip fractures. A database on hip fractures could be used to help better treat patients and allow them to return to their homes sooner after injury.
“Research matters to us, to patients, to physicians, to our families – to really everyone,” Dr. Fairbanks said.
