From 8 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., faculty as well as graduate, health sciences, and medical students will be available to discuss their research at the posters presentation in the Vennes Atrium.

Joshua Wynne, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., UND vice president for health affairs and dean of the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences, will deliver the opening remarks at noon in the Reed Keller Lecture Hall.

From 12:15 to 1:15 p.m., keynote speaker Andrew D. Badley will present his address "Translational approaches to curing HIV Infection." At Mayo Clinic, Badley is a professor of medicine and consultant in the Division of Infectious Diseases; associate director of the Research Resources component of the Center for Translational Science Activities; and theme leader for infectious disease research on the Research Development Council, an internal Mayo committee.
