Biomedical Research Retreat

Biomedical Research Retreat

VCOM’s third research retreat was held October 20th and 21st, 2016 at Lake Norman, NC. The focus was on biomedical research with special emphasis on VCOM research objectives and those of the AOA Strategic Plan for Research. The objective of this faculty development program is to equip faculty with the tools and mentoring to be successful in developing a biomedical research program including proposal submissions and scholarly activity.

VCOM welcomed two outstanding guest speakers to the Research Retreat, Dr. Tom Best, University of Miami UHealth Sports and Wellness Institute, and Mr. Van Hipp, American Defense International. Dr. Best presented on soft tissue and musculoskeletal research, from animal models of exercise and treatments to clinical studies of massage and exercise, and Mr. Hipp discussed funding opportunities for biomedical research and how to best match research expertise and capabilities. Both talks were excellent and served as platforms that encouraged discussion between the basic scientists and clinical researchers in attendance.

Videos of each presentation, as well as PDF downloads of the PowerPoint files and handouts are available in the tables below.
