We are excited to invite you to join us for the first virtual Missouri Resident Research Conference.  Throughout the first week of June, daily from noon to 2PM, over 50 residents will present on their research projects.  The event is organized by topic track so that each individual in attendance can customize his or her own schedule for the week.  Registration is free and you can attend as many topic tracks as you like.  We look forward to showcasing the hard work of our Missouri residents and hope to virtually see you all there!

The conference has been developed and supported in partnership with  the MSHP Research and Education (R&E) Foundation, St. Louis College of Pharmacy (STLCOP) and University of Missouri - Kansas City (UMKC)
