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 37th annual MSRD will be held on Thursday, September 18, 2014 in Bressler Research Building (BRB) and Medical School Teaching Facility (MSTF). The keynote speaker for this year's program is Thomas M. Scalea, M.D., FACS, Professor of Surgery, Physician-in-Chief R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, Francis X. Kelly Distinguished Professor in Trauma Surgery, System Chief for Critical Care Services, and 2014-2015 President of the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma. 

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