The Research Symposium aims to recognize the research efforts of those at Des Moines University and in the surrounding medical and scientific communities. The Symposium provides a forum for the collaboration of ideas, the production of new hypotheses, and demonstrates to attendees the critical role that research plays in the advancements of health care.
DMU faculty, staff, students, residents, alumni, external researchers and health professionals from the Des Moines area and surrounding medical and scientific community are invited to participate and present. All students, faculty, and residents are encouraged to develop research projects to be presented at the Symposium.
The 2020 DMU Research Symposium is going virtual! There is no cost to attend but registration is requested. Visit https://cme.dmu.edu/Research2020 for more information and to register.
