The Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Honor Society and the Office of Student Research (OSR) in the Dean's Office have sponsored Medical Student Research Day (MSRD) for over 30 years. MSRD is a proud tradition for University of Maryland's medical students to present their research accomplishments to the school and the campus. The presentations are judged, and competitive prizes are awarded in recognition of outstanding research and presentations.

This year, the 36th annual MSRD will be held on Tuesday, September 17, 2013 in Bressler Research Building (BRB) and Medical School Teaching Facility (MSTF). The keynote speaker for this year's program is Alan R. Shuldiner, M.D., Professor and Division Head of the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Nutrition in the Department of Medicine. He is the Co-Director of the University of Maryland Clinical and Translational Research Institute (CTSI) and the Director of the Program in Personalized and Genomic Medicine. 

MSRD will begin at noon, and presentation sessions will end near 6:00 pm followed by the awards banquet until 8:00 pm.
