Medical Student Research Day

Medical Student Research Day is hosted annually to share and showcase the scientific knowledge created by Icahn Mount Sinai students through their investigative studies. The 2024 Medical Student Research Day was held on Thursday, March 21, 2024. A celebration of the accomplishments, curiosity, and rigorous research of the Icahn Mount Sinai medical student body, this year’s event marked the 29th year of Medical Student Research Day. Founded by former Medical Research Office Director, Karen Zier, PhD, Professor Emeritus, in 2018 the celebration was renamed in Dr. Zier’s honor.
