2013 Medical Student Research Symposium
The Medical Student Research Club held its fifth annual Medical Student Research Symposium on April 4, with welcoming remarks and the 2013 Distinguished Scholar Lecture. Following the presentation, a poster reception with 58 student research posters was held in the White Hall Atrium.
The annual Distinguished Scholar award is presented to the fourth year student or students who have demonstrated a continued commitment to medical scholarship. Distinguished Scholars are recognized for generating a significant body of scholarly work, for working collaboratively with students and faculty, for demonstrating leadership in the Research Learning Community, and for advancing student research at the Boonshoft School of Medicine. The Medical Student Research Club presented 2013 Distinguished Scholar Awards to Colleen McCormick, Jenn Rammel, Lakshman Swamy and Nathan Weir.
The symposium was organized by the Wright State Medical Student Research Club with support from the Boonshoft School of Medicine Office of Research Affairs. The club was established in 2007. The group plans a series of meetings, lectures and workshops every year to introduce student researchers and potential faculty mentors and help students to develop research experiences during their medical education. Programming includes the Translational Research Lecture Series and culminates in April with the annual Medical Student Research Symposium.
