Mark your calendar for this year’s Ozark Biomedical Initiative Research Symposium, which will be held 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, in the Havener Center. The symposium includes lunch. Please register online.

The event promotes the current collaborative research and education activities between Missouri S&T and Phelps Health by featuring a keynote scientific speaker and research presentations from S&T and Phelps Health researchers. Applications for speakers are still being accepted.

If you would like to apply to present your research, please contact Dr. Richard Brow at, or Dr. Casey Burton at

Brow is interim deputy provost for academic affairs, Curators’ Distinguished Professor of materials science and engineering and director of S&T’s Center for Biomedical Research. Burton is director of medical research at Phelps Health and adjunct professor of chemistry at S&T.

An abstract of your research must be submitted with the application.

The symposium’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 Leonard Wood Institute.

Gill’s research uses a biomarker harvesting technology with a nanoparticle capture platform for bioanalysis of patient samples immediately following a trauma.
