Research Forum

Rush University Forum 2020

Please note: As precautions to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19 continue to escalate and to heed advisory issued by the Centers for Disease Control, the 37th annual Rush University Forum for Research and Clinical Investigation is being postponed and will be rescheduled after the COVID-19 outbreak has been contained. We apologize for any inconvenience.


The 37th Annual Rush University Forum for Research and Clinical Investigation is sponsored by Rush University Medical Center, Rush University, the Rush University Chapter of Sigma Xi, the John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County and the affiliated hospitals of the Rush System for Health.

The research forum provides an opportunity to showcase the research activities of faculty and students and to foster awareness of research at Rush and its affiliated institutions. Investigators engaged in basic, clinical or applied research in various disciplines will have an opportunity to share their work during research forum events, to get to know one another and to explore new collaborative possibilities.
