The University of New England’s College of Osteopathic Medicine held its annual Research Day on January 24th 2014.
The symposium commenced with a keynote address by David Biondi, D.O. ‘85, titled, “Does a Practicing Clinician Need To Know About Research Methodology? Your Success May Depend On It!” Dr. Biondi is presently therapeutic area lead for neuroscience, U.S. Medical Affairs, for Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc, and UNE Board of Trustee member and Chair of the Academic Affairs committee.
The day also included talks by other alumnae, William Bograkos, D.O.,’85 and Thomas Reynolds D.O., ’06.
