On Saturday, Nov. 2, the A.T. Still Research Institute at A.T. Still University’s (ATSU) Kirksville, Missouri, campus hosted its 11th annual Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Symposium (IBRS). This event provided an opportunity for graduate students, undergraduate students, residents, faculty, and regional researchers across biomedical disciplines to present their research to peers.

IBRS included oral presentations, poster presentations, and a keynote speaker. This year’s Neil J. Sargentini, PhD, Memorial Keynote Address featured Kerry Magruder, PhD. Dr. Magruder’s presentation discussed Galileo, the collaborative nature of his accomplishments, and how an interdisciplinary and creative culture continues to lead to innovation.

Seventy-seven researchers across 10 disciplines presented their research at the symposium. A panel of 40 judges determined the winners for best overall research and runner up, the Neil J. Sargentini, PhD, Award for Best Graduate Student Research, the Jack Magruder Award for Best Undergraduate Student Research, and the Still OPTI Award for Best Resident Research. Each award was accompanied by a cash prize between $100 and $250. Elyse Curry, OMS II, and Kale Golden, OMS II, won the top prize of best overall research for their infectious disease study titled “Purification of Persistence Inducing Factor for Staphylococcus aureus SH1000.”
