Celebrating Excellence in Research
The mission of Research Week is:
- to promote research by faculty, staff and students at USU and its affiliate institutions;
- to provide opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration;
- and to facilitate communication among USU graduate students and faculty.
"Celebrating Excellence in Research" reflects the complementary roles that nursing, public health, behavioral science, basic science, and medicine play in health promotion. The poster presentations, invited speakers, and panels demonstrate USU's special role in civilian, public health, and military research initiatives across the health sciences.
This annual two-day event formally encompasses four events:
the Graduate School of Nursing (GSN) Research Colloquium, which brings together GSN faculty and students to present and discuss nursing-specific research findings;
the Graduate Student Colloquium, which highlights the research interests and accomplishments of graduate students in the School of Medicine;
the Postdoctoral Fellows Symposium and Faculty Senate Research Day, which draws the entire USU community to share research achievements, foster collaborations, and stimulate intellectual exchange.
Together, they serve 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.
We are very excited about this year's program and look forward to seeing you and your research! Please note pre-registration will close on Friday, May 2. On-site registration will be available at USU starting on May 14.
