Grasberger Research Symposium

In 1990, the Department of Surgery established the Grasberger Research Symposium in memory of Robert C. Grasberger, MD, an outstanding graduate of our training program who died in 1987. In recognition of Dr. Grasberger’s academic and research accomplishments, the Grasberger Symposium provides an opportunity for our surgical residents and fellows to present original basic and clinical research.

Residents, fellows, and medical students participated in the 2021 Grasberger Research Symposium poster session.
