Welcome to the Second Annual Emory Postdoctoral Research Symposium!


 This Symposium is a tribute to the energy and enthusiasm of Emory University’s Postdoctoral Fellows and the Postdoc Research Committee members who have organized and contributed so much to this key event. The Symposium showcases the significant contributions of Postdoctoral Fellows to the Emory research enterprise and represents a special time for Postdoctoral Fellows to build collaborative research networks and community with peers. Special thanks to the following Postdoctoral Fellows:

Michael McCabe - Radiation Oncology

Drew Kohlhorst - Cell Biology

Smita Iyer - Microbiology/Immunology

We welcome all Postdoctoral Fellows, faculty and graduate students to hear the diverse and interesting research of the Postdoctoral Fellows. There will be 19 Postdoctoral Fellow talks and over 100 posters. Special honors will be awarded for selected posters and special mentors who will be the new members of the “One-in-a-Hundred” Club chosen for their outstanding research training and career development support of postdoctoral fellows.

Thanks to the contributions of the research community at Emory including faculty and Postdoctoral Fellow mentors, and the generous support of the Office of the Dean SOM. The audience is encouraged to actively participate in this Research Symposium to learn new things and give valuable feedback to the Postdoctoral Fellows.
