In recognition of Dr. Thomas’ achievements while at Bassett, a program designed to stimulate research interest among residents was named in his honor. Three-year residents are offered an opportunity to pursue research under this program. Residents have the option of selecting from a variety of types of projects and, work with time allocated to the project, under a Bassett physician or scientist.
Alternatively, a resident may choose to design his/her own project. Residents have access to the resources of the Bassett Research Institute.
Research projects are displayed and presented at the annual E. Donnall Thomas Research Day.
