Mark your calendars for this year’s Ozark Biomedical Research Symposium to be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 14, in the Havener Center.

The event promotes the current, collaborative research and education activities between Missouri S&T and Phelps Health and applications for speakers are still being accepted.

If you would like to apply to present your research, please contact Dr. Richard Brow, interim deputy provost for academic affairs and Curators’ Distinguished Professor of materials science and engineering at brow@mst.edu; or Dr. Casey Burton, director of medical research at Phelps Health and adjunct professor of chemistry at S&T, at cburton@phelpshealth.org. An abstract of your research is needed with the application.

This year’s keynote speaker, Dr. Jessica M. Gill, is an expert researcher on the neurological treatment of traumatic brain injury, the subject of more than $5 million in federal funding that was recently awarded to S&T and Phelps Health through the Fort Leonard Wood Institute. Gill’s research employs a cutting-edge biomarker harvesting technology using a nanoparticle capture platform in a prospective sample of patients immediately following a trauma.
