PAGNY is pleased to announce that it will hold its First Annual Research Day on May 4, 2016, to focus attention on the biomedical research being conducted by PAGNY physicians. The event will promote the commitment of NYC Health + Hospitals to support and promote research aimed at improving patient care at its facilities.
“In addition to promoting the scope and quality of research activities being pursued at PAGNY facilities, Research Day will provide a single forum where PAGNY physicians can share their research interests with colleagues and identify common interests and opportunities for collaboration across PAGNY facilities,” said Dr. Balavenkatesh Kanna, Chair of the PAGNY Research Committee.
The PAGNY Research Committee encourages physicians to submit research abstracts for consideration and display during the Research Day poster session. The deadline for submission of abstracts is April 10, 2016. Submissions should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The abstracts will be judged by a distinguished panel of experienced researchers.
Abstracts selected for display will be announced on April 18, 2016. Three winners from among those selected will also be given the opportunity to make oral presentations of their research. All participants will receive a certificate of participation.
Research Day will be held at the New York Academy of Medicine, 1215 Fifth Avenue (at 103rd Street), in the Library Reading Room on the third floor.
