An essential aspect of any research project is dissemination of the findings arising from the study. The most common ways to make others aware of your work is by publishing the results in a journal article, or by completing a poster presentation, most often to be displayed at a regional or national meeting. OU-HCOM's Center for Osteopathic Research & Education (CORE) Research Office can provide assistance to students, interns, and residents who wish to prepare a poster. CLICK HERE for more information.
2012 Poster Contest Grows Significantly
The OU-HCOM/OOA/CORE 2012 Poster Exhibition and Competition featured a record 82 posters from eight states, representing a 15 percent growth over the previous year.
The yearly poster exhibition and competition was held during the annual Ohio Osteopathic Symposium at the Hilton Columbus at Easton Town Center on Saturday, April 21, 2012.
Sponsored by the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (OU-HCOM), the Centers for Osteopathic Research and Education (CORE), and the Ohio Osteopathic Association (OOA), for the second year in a row the poster competition included participants from outside Ohio. Research abstracts and posters were submitted from Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Washington, Virginia, Kentucky, Arizona, and Iowa.
Competition was open to osteopathic residents, interns and medical students. Research posters were judged in two categories: case reports and clinical/biomedical. The first and second place posters in each category received $1,000 and $500 respectively. Faculty, osteopathic physicians and other medical educators exhibited research posters, but were ineligible to compete.
In the 2012 OOA/CORE category for Biomedical/Clinical research, Kevin Swiatek, OMS II from OU-HCOM, won first place for his poster "Exploring the Molecular Mechanism of How C-10 Reverses Insulin Resistance in a Mouse Model of Obesity-Induced Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus". Andrew Vogel, OMS I, OU-HCOM, won second place for his poster "SapF-Medicated Heme Iron Utilization Enhances Persistence and Coordinates Biofilm Architecture of Haemophilus".
In the 2012 OOA/CORE category for Case Reports, Chase Scarbrough, OMS IV, OU-HCOM, won first place for his poster “Transdermal Metformin: A Case Series Review of a Novel Application of Metformin". Dharmpal Vansadia, D.O., a second year orthopedic resident at Grandview Medical Center in Dayton, won second place for his poster "Release of Post-Traumatic Wrist and Metacarpal-Phalangeal Joint Contractures".
“I am delighted with the growth we have experienced in our Poster Competition and Exhibition over the past several years,” said Grace Brannan, Ph.D., CORE research director. “We are proud to feature resident and student research and reward them for outstanding research efforts in osteopathic medicine. We look forward to our continued partnership with the Ohio Osteopathic Association as our regional competition grows.”
In all, 82 abstracts were submitted for this year's event. Of the poster abstracts accepted for the competition, 31 posters presented case reports and 42 posters presented the findings of clinical/biomedical research. Nine additional posters were exhibited, but were not eligible for competition.
