CAMAC Research Day
CAMAC RESEARCH DAY
The Comprehensive Musculoskeletal Disease and Autoimmunity Center (CAMAC) Research Day, held this year on Friday, September 19, 2014, at the UAB Alumni House, was a resounding success! It provided an opportunity for the development of interdisciplinary research collaborations among more than 100 scientists interested in arthritis, musculoskeletal and autoimmune disease who participated. These included junior faculty and trainees from the School of Medicine/Joint Health Sciences, the School of Public Health, the School of Engineering, and the School of Dentistry. Nearly 40 posters were submitted for the poster competition. Click here for the CAMAC Research Day Awardees.
