2013 APSA Midwest Regional Meeting

The 2013 APSA Midwest Regional Meeting will take place on Saturday November 9th at The Ohio State University.

As federal research funding becomes more limited, physician-scientist trainees need to be aware of other avenues of research support. The 2013 APSA Midwest Regional Meeting will focus on public-private partnerships in biomedical research in order to help introduce trainees to some of these possibilities. Speakers include Wolfgang Sadee, Chair of Ohio State's Pharmacogenetics program, Michael Caligiuri, Chief Executive Officer of the James Cancer Hospital, and Penny Heaton, the Director of Vaccine Development at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Students will have a chance to network with each other and representatives from biomedical companies at our student poster session, break out sessions, and reception. Undergraduates interested in physician-scientist should also plan to attend. This year's meeting features sessions on the MD-PhD application process and representatives from programs around the Midwest, not to mention the chance to interact with MD-PhD students from these programs.

Parking for the conference is available at the 12th Avenue Garage at 340 W 12th Ave for $6.25 for the day.
