This year marked the 24th time USF Health's emerging scientists came together to present their projects, with judges scrutinizing the data and deciding the winners.
The day long event brings together researchers from across all USF Health colleges, programs and disciplines, as well as guest researchers from USF programs studying the science of health. In addition to those from USF, four of the poster presenters were middle school students from Berkeley Preparatory School in Tampa, showcasing their own award-winning posters.
The day began when 10 select students presented their work at the 5th Annual Joseph Krzanowski, PhD, USF Health Invited Oral Presentations Session. The few, whose work earned them an invitation to present their work orally, this year were: Sandra Acosta, Ruan Cox, Elisabeth Franzen, Stephanie Hudey, Adnan Muhammad, Misty Ochotny, Shams Rahman, Erika Thomspon, Jillian Whelan, Jonathan Wischhusen, and Zhiwei Zhou.
