Medical Student Researchers Present Sept. 27 RLC Lecture

RLC (Research Learning Community) logoThe Research Learning Community at Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine presents the first event in the 2012-2013 RLC Lecture Series (formerly known as the Translational Research Lecture Series) on Thursday, Sept. 27, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in Room 120 White Hall. All BSOM faculty and students are invited to attend.

The RLC Lecture will feature presentations by three WSU medical students who have taken innovative pathways to integrate research into their medical education:

MS3 students Shaina Hecht and Kyle Davis will present “Participating in an International Research Conference: Getting Your Feet Wet While Eating Crêpes.” This summer, they traveled to Paris to attend the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) World Congress.  Their presentation will describe WFH outreach programs for diagnosing and treating people with bleeding disorders in developing countries, and strategies for building a student-initiated elective (SIE) for participating effectively in an international research meeting.

M.D./Ph.D. student Adam Deardorff  will discuss an innovative strategy to incorporate medical student investigators in a neuroscience research laboratory. Deardorff won the Best Student Presentation Award at the International Motoneuron Meeting held this summer in Sydney, Australia. His research advisor is Robert Fyffe, Ph.D.

Dinner will be provided on Sept. 27. Please RSVP to Adam Deardorff (deardorff.2@wright.edu) if you plan to attend.

The Research Learning Community (RLC) is an evolving collaboration  among medical students, faculty, and the Office of Research Affairs at Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine. The RLC promotes research opportunities and seeks to build a supportive learning environment for medical student research.
