DOM/WSE Poster Session Recap

Thank you to everyone who participated in the return of the Department of Medicine and Whiting School of Engineering Poster Session. It was a thrill to see so many investigators in one place again. The event was buzzing with excitement and budding multidisciplinary collaborations. We look forward to February when we can once again combine our DOM & WSE Research Retreat and Poster Session.

Thank you to everyone who submitted abstracts. We had over 100 posters in total covering many different disciplines. Congratulations to our abstract award winners listed below.
