The Sixth Annual San Diego Resident Research Competition, held Aug. 13, showcased resident researchers from southern California. Projects and podium presentations were judged by basic science and clinical faculty members from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and Naval Medical Center San Diego (NMCSD). Visiting professor H. Thomas Temple, MD, from the University of Miami, judged the competition and delivered keynote talks on tissue banking and bone and soft-tissue allografts.

Hosted by the NMCSD department of orthopaedic surgery, the annual research competition provides an opportunity for resident researchers to showcase their best work. Sixteen podium presentations—eight basic science and eight clinical science—were featured. Topics included cutting-edge clinical studies on scoliosis, genetic expression patterns in rotator cuff arthropathy, and laser treatments for scar contracture treatments in hands.
