The Eastern-Atlantic Student Research Forum (ESRF) is an international symposium held at the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine (UMMSM) in Miami, Florida. Each year, ESRF selects medical, graduate, M.D./Ph.D. students, and resident physicians from the United States, Canada, Europe, Central and South Americas to present original basic science and clinical research in multiple biomedical fields. In addition to formal presentations, the forum includes the informal exchange of scientific ideas among students and faculty preceptors, the encouragement of student-initiated research, and the professional development of future leaders in biomedical research.
