MSTP Grand Rounds

The MSTP Grand Rounds Series was conceived as a vehicle to showcase not only the MSTP program, but also to highlight the important biomedical research of University of Iowa investigators.  These approximately 50-minute presentations are divided into two integrated sections:  the first is a clinical presentation describing an interesting case and the relevant diagnostic information (laboratory tests, biopsies and imaging studies).  The second section is a scientific presentation of a focused avenue of research directly related to the case; it may be in the area of diagnosis, pathogenesis, or therapeutic intervention.  

Grand Round presentations are made by MSTP students with advising from a faculty committee.  See the Grand Rounds Guidelines for more information.
