Thomas Jefferson University Chapter
Sigma Xi Student Research Day

Spring 2014

Dear Student or Faculty Member,

The scientific honor society of Sigma Xi, Thomas Jefferson University chapter, in conjunction with the Jefferson Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Jefferson Medical College, hosts an annual Student Research Day. This year the day is Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014.

The day's events include Student Poster Presentations and the William Potter Lecture, given this year by Gavril Pasternak, M.D., Ph.D., Anne Burnett Tandy Chair in Neurology, Member and Laboratory Head of the Molecular Pharmacology and Chemistry Program at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Professor of Neurology, Neuroscience, Pharmacology and Psychiatry at Weill Cornell College of Medicine.

A reception with additional opportunities to view the posters follows the talk. All the events will take place in the Hamilton Building on Locust Street between 10th and 11th Streets on the Thomas Jefferson University campus.

Jefferson graduate and medical students and undergraduate students from area colleges are invited to participate. All students present their research in poster format, in competition for modest cash prizes. Last year, Sigma Xi and Thomas Jefferson University awarded prizes to 18 winning posters.

I cordially invite students and their faculty advisors to join us on this enjoyable day. It's a fine way to share your research findings and experiences, and is also a valuable learning experience.

If you have procedural questions about Sigma Xi Student Research Day, please contact TJU Chapter officers at tjusigmaxi@gmail.com or Rod MacNeil at (215) 503-2827. We look forward to your participation in April.


Gerald B. Grunwald, Ph.D.
