The eight colleges of the Health Professions Division—College of Dental Medicine, College of Medical Sciences, College of Optometry, College of Pharmacy, Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Allopathic Medicine, Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences, and Ron and Kathy Assaf College of Nursing—have banded together to offer poster displays and oral presentations of their current cutting-edge research. We anticipate more than 130 oral and poster presentations and over 2,000 students, faculty, and guests to be in attendance. Adding to the festivities will be a judging and presentation of awards for outstanding research. This event promises to be more than a day-long celebration of research and scholarly activities. It is also an opportunity for students and faculty from multiple disciplines to interact with each other and with the larger research community. HPD Research Day is the premier, student-participated academic research event in Florida..
