5th Annual San Antonio Postdoctoral Research Forum (SAPRF)


The 5th Annual San Antonio Postdoctoral Research Forum (SAPRF) will take place on Thursday, September 21st at the Holly Auditorium on the Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long Campus of UT Health San Antonio.


This forum, like the previous four iterations will showcase the entire range of research conducted by the San Antonio postdoctoral community. The SAPRF will include postdoctoral research fellow participants from four San Antonio Institutions: Texas Biomedical Research Institute (TBRI), United States Army Institute for Surgical Research (USAISR), University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), and UT Health San Antonio (formerly known as UTHSCSA).

The poster session will tentatively take place from 1:15 – 3:00 pm. The morning session will be devoted to short oral presentations. The keynote address will be delivered by Prof. Larry S. Schlesinger, President and CEO of the TBRI, at 4 pm. A networking reception is scheduled afterward from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.


This forum is a postdoc driven endeavour. It's organization and execution is conducted by postdoctoral scientists from UT Health SA and our sister institutions, in collaboration with the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. The postdoctoral community is a significant driver of the research mission of UT Health and the other research organizations in the San Antonio area. I would appreciate it if you post the attached flyer for the forum on the NPA website. Publicity at the national level would be fantastic way to enhance the visibility of this forum and of the Postdoctoral Association. Please let me know if there are any questions that I can answer regarding this forum and the postdoctoral community in San Antonio.
