The mission of the UVM Postdoctoral Association (UVM PDA) is to facilitate professional development, broaden the training experience, and foster a vibrant, open, and collaborative community for all Postdoctoral Scholars at UVM.

The PDA recently hosted a Postdoc Research Showcase, where postdocs were encouraged to present a poster they had given at an international, regional, or local meeting in the last year. This was our second Postdoc Research Showcase event, and it was as successful as our first! We had 13 posters presented representing the breadth of postdoctoral research endeavors at the university and, importantly, providing the only opportunity on campus for postdocs to gather and present their work to each other, graduate students, and faculty of the University.

This year we were also honored to have Dean Forehand, Dean of the Graduate College, and Dean Page, the new Dean of the College of Medicine, join us at the Poster event. Dean Page also was kind enough to share a few words on his plans to grow the research program in the College of Medicine, recognizing the important role that postdocs and graduate students will play in that undertaking. The PDA is very lucky to have the support of Dean Forehand and Dean Page!

If you are around UVM next spring, consider joining us for our third annual Postdoc Research Showcase.
