The Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC will hold its annual Research Day on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at the USC Galen Center.
The day-long event dedicated to scientific inquiry and discovery is open to all Ostrow students and faculty members, including those from the USC Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy as well as the USC Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy.

Information provided will appear in the Research Day 2015 booklet presented at the event. Abstracts submitted after Feb. 17, 2015, will not be published in the booklet.

The abstract must contain objectives, methods, results, data and statistical analysis, conclusions and acknowledgment of support. In addition, each participant will be required to attach a PDF alongside their abstract submission for clerical purposes.
Again abstracts are due by Feb. 17, 2015.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Ms. Donna Castillo at (213) 821-5554 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
