What is Research Day?

Research Day showcases the recent research contributions of faculty and students in science, clinical practice, education and public health. The year’s Research Day will focus on Community Engaged Research. For the first time, this event will be fully remote and open to healthcare and education professionals from all over the country! Keynote speaker Dr. Andrew Tompkins, the Director of the Division of Substance Abuse and Addiction Medicine at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, will discuss his research on the diagnosis and treatment of people with opioid use disorders and his current prospective observational study project.

A showcase of TUC research with a focus Community Engaged Research that includes a poster session where the audience can learn from students and faculty about the research projects they have undertaken and participate in a question-and-answer session. Dr. Tompkins’ talk will shed light on how San Francisco County is addressing the opioid crisis through long-term, multi-disciplinary care, as is the case with Dr. Tompkins’ current prospective observational study project – Project HOUDINI LINK, which involves six months of patient navigation into ongoing treatment for opioid use disorder. Dr. Clipper Young, Dr. Richie Duenas, Laura Dutch, all of whom are TUC alumni, will sit on the panel.

*Given the remote nature of this year's Research Day the virtual poster presentation will occur in two ways. The first is that all presenters will provide a pre-recorded version of your poster presentation that is available at https://sites.google.com/view/tuc-research-day-2021/home Please review the pre-recorded presentation prior to Research Day.

The second portion of the virtual poster presentation is a live, synchronous group Zoom session that will allow members of the community to ask questions of the presenters. These sessions are thematically organized, with 5 to 7 presenters in each room, during either the 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm or 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm slot. A facilitator will manage each session, with questions and answers of the poster presenters. The goal of this live session is not to present the poster, but to give all participants an opportunity to interact with and answer questions from the community.
