The UNC SOM John B. Graham Student Research Society is not currently calling for abstracts for oral and poster presentations for our annual Student Research Day to be held on Monday, November 4th, 2024. Please check back in July for more information regarding abstract submissions.

Established in 1987, the John B. Graham Medical Student Research Society recognizes and promotes the research efforts of the Medical Students and Allied Health Sciences students at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in the fields of basic science, public health, clinical science, medical education, quality improvement, and more. Students who participate in the annual Student Research Day, an event dedicated to showcase the research projects of medical students, are inducted every year to the Society. Throughout the year, members exchange ideas and share their experiences about conducting research. In addition, the Society serves to encourage collaboration with faculty to promote productive research opportunities for students.

Any research, whether conducted as an SOM student or prior to medical school, is welcome.

This year we will conduct an in-person Student Research Day event. Our schedule & keynote speaker will be announced soon. 


Please reach out to the Research Opportunities Team or directly to with any questions!
