Congratulations to all for a great summer!

All of you did an outstanding job Thursday and Friday at the SRPinAM Oral Presentations. You all should be extremely proud of the overall high level work you did this summer and especially thankful for your mentor’s guidance. We were very impressed with your work and presentations.

We are looking forward to the SRPinAM Poster Session on Thursday, September 3, 2015.

As is the nature of competitions, there is going to be a limited number of exemplary work rewarded. Although all presentations were excellent, the SRPinAM panel of judges selected unanimously the following as the best presentations for the Oral Presentation Awards.

SRPinAM 2015

1st Prize: Taylor Alexi Twiggs - Inhibition of PRL2 and MLL Decreases the Survival of Mixed Lineage Leukemia Cells

2nd Prize: Callie Brook Burgin - Stabilizing Neurofibromin by Silencing the Ubiquitin Proteasome Pathway

3th Prize Matthew William Segar - Clinical utility of alternative splicing events across tumor types 

4th Prize: Dominique Laughlin Doster - Human Adipocyte Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cell Attenuation of Intestinal Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury

5th Prize: Jacob Tyler Shreve - Molecular Subtype Classification of Gastric Adenocarcinoma Cell Lines Reveals Incomplete Spectrum of Clinical Representation 

6th Prize: (Pei) Amy Zhang - Effects of endothelial colony forming cell (ECFC) spheroids on vascular formation and post-transplantation ECFC survival

7th Prize: Brian Michael McGowan - Effects of Combination Osteoporosis Drug Treatment on Vertebral Properties

8th Prize: Ian Arthur Gelarden - Effects of BTK and PI3K? Inhibition on the Proliferation of Leukemogenic Gain-of-Function Shp2 Macrophages

8th Prize: Jason Paul Davis - Changes in liver allograft steatosis and its impact on early graft function and long term survival

The panel of judges was composed of the following faculty: Mervin C. Yoder (MD), James J. Brokaw (PhD, MPH), Peter J. Roach (PhD), Rebecca J. Chan (MD, PhD), Angelo A. Cardoso (MD, PhD), Robert Considine (PhD), Harikrishna B. Nakshatri (PhD), Robert S. Tepper (MD, PhD), Robert P. Nelson (MD), Timothy A. Sutton (MD, PhD), Barbara Kluve-Beckerman (PhD), and Joseph P. Bidwell (PhD).

The judging was based on your oral presentation. Criteria for selection was based on quality of science, quality of the presentation (delivery and clarity), ability to respond to questions, communication of the level of motivation/enthusiasm and ownership of the project, clarity about the student’s own contribution versus lab’s contribution to the project.

My best wishes for a great second year of medical school and we encourage you to present at the AMA Research Symposium in Atlanta in November or any of the Medical Student Research Forums throughout the year (http://www.wsmrf.net/http://uresearch.miami.edu/esrf, andhttp://www.utmb.edu/nsrf/). Go make us proud!

Please keep us updated with your successes, publications and presentation at meetings. Also, let us know if you want to pursue other research experience in the future or if you need information or advice.

 

Forty-eight medical students participated in the Student Research Program in Academic Medicine (SRPinAM) Poster Session held Thursday, September 3rd in the VanNuys Medical Science Building Mills Atrium. The event showcased the medical student’s work, who participated in the SRPinAM during the summer 2015. The students spent the summer working with a research mentor on a research project that they called their own and could be completed within the 12 weeks of the summer program. Additionally, five students, who were selected for the SRPinAM, but ended up doing another program, were invited to show their work.

Each student gave a 10 minute presentation on their work to a group of faculty judges who judged the poster on scientific quality, presentation, poster organization, and response to questions. There were five groups of judges that included

  • Angelo A. Cardoso, 
  • Jeffrey S. Elmendorf, 
  • Teresa A. Zimmer, 
  • Edward F. Srour, 
  • Melissa L. Fishel, 
  • Rebecca J. Chan, 
  • Henrique Serezani, 
  • Timothy W. Corson, 
  • Linda A. DiMeglio, 
  • Robert V. Considine, 
  • Yan Liu
  • James P. Walsh.

Nadia Carlesso, Director of the SRPinAM, presented award certificates to nine of the students who were selected as the top oral presenters from the SRPinAM Oral Presentation Competition held on July 30th and 31st. Carlesso congratulated the students on an excellent job over the summer and encouraged them to continue their research. The program’s aim is to expose medical students to research in hopes of producing or encouraging students to become physician scientists.

Nine students were awarded Best Poster with three students receiving Honorable mention.
