The 34th Annual Research Showcase and Awards Day will be held on April 12 and 13, 2021.
Because of restrictions due to COVID-19, we will be holding the showcase over two days to allow for distancing, and we will use a hybrid model for portions of the event. We will provide details on the format later in March. Nonetheless, the event will be full of excitement and discovery as our professional, graduate, and undergraduate students and postdoctoral trainees in the College of Pharmacy compete (via either oral or poster presentations) for the distinction of being the best in one of the following categories:
- Junior Division (pre-qualifying exam)
- Senior – Basic Sciences Division
- Senior – Clinical Sciences Division
- Postdoctoral Trainee Division
Current graduate students and postdoctoral trainees are encouraged to submit their research to be considered to compete in the Oral Competition. The Graduate Studies Committee will review all entries and select the top three finalists to present in each category. The finalists will give a 12-15 minute presentation followed by a 3-5 minute question/answer period. A winner in each division is selected by a panel of judges. Each winner and finalist will receive a cash award.
The poster competition is open to College of Pharmacy graduate students, Pharm.D. students, undergraduates involved in research, and postdoctoral trainees and residents. All participants must be active students, postdoctoral trainees or pharmacy residents at the University of Florida to compete. Presentations are judged by a faculty panel. Winners in each category will receive a cash award.
