UC Irvine News Brief: Health-based research to be celebrated at School of Medicine festival

UC Irvine’s cutting-edge research will be display Tuesday, May 24, at the first School of Medicine Clinical, Basic & Translational Science Festival. The event begins in Tamkin Hall with keynote lectures by UCI’s Hamid Said and Dr. Steven Cramer (pictured), followed by a vast poster presentation in Sprague and Gillespie halls. The posters will highlight the efforts of researchers from the Institute for Clinical & Translational Science, UC Irvine Medical Center, the VA Long Beach Healthcare System, CHOC Children’s hospital, Long Beach Memorial Hospital and Hoag Hospital. Following will be an award ceremony and a happy hour. “Health research advances have been a UCI hallmark, and this event shares our breakthroughs with the community,” says Dr. Paolo Casali, senior associate dean for research & graduate studies. “We invite everyone at UCI and in the community to attend.”
