Surgery Research Day


Eric R. Frykberg, MD Lecture and Surgery Research Day

The Department of Surgery holds an annual Surgery Research Day, designed to showcase and celebrate the exceptional research work in which our resident scholars participate. The goal is to congratulate those residents and post-doctoral scholars who have completed their work as well as to stimulate them to pursue additional endeavors.

In 2016, Research Day was renamed in honor of Dr. Eric Frykberg, an MUSC Surgical alumnus, who built a brilliant and productive career that has made the practice of Surgery safer, better, and smarter. 

Each year, the Department invites a guest judge and lecturer to participate in Surgery Research Day.

This year, Melina R. Kibbe, M.D., Professor of Surgery with tenure, the Colin G. Thomas, Jr. Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Surgery at the University of North Carolina (UNC) was the invited guest judge and lecturer. Dr Kibbe also is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. 

Dr. Kibbe will delivered the Eric R. Frykberg lecture, entitled The Ups and Downs of Translational Research – One Surgeon’s Journey
