Graduate Research Day

The School of Medicine Librarian Liaison, Kathy Kerdolff recently attended Graduate Studies Research Day. Here’s what Kathy had to say about the event:

“I was so impressed with all these young researchers who patiently explained their research (displayed on their posters) with enthusiasm.

The things I learned:

  • The number of patients going to the ER (in Arkansas) for a non-traumatic dental visit/emergency.
  • NSAID sulindac sulfide as a possible cancer tumor reduction therapy.
  • A RCT to see if a WeChat (Social media in China) intervention would help reduce smoking in Chinese smokers.
  • Statistics on pancreatic cancer by sub-sites and mortality.
  • A novel NSC (neural stem cells) as possible treatment in triple negative breast cancer cells.
  • Binge alcohol levels are higher in HIV (Study used SIV and macaques) to see why HIV patients misuse Alcohol more than non-HIV patients.
  • Glioblastoma Multiforme experimental therapies.
  • Research testing renal cell carcinoma tumors.
  • Alcohol hyperpermeability of lymphatic endomethial cells.
  • Therapeutic potential for Hunnington’s disease and others like it.
  • Incidence of esophageal and gastric carcinomas among various populations. “

Below you will find pictures Kathy took of the researches and their posters:

Medical Student Research Day a Huge Success

LSUHSC Medical Students who participated in the Summer Research Internship Program and learned laboratory and clinical research techniques used in medical research presented posters of their research results Friday, October 11th, 2019. Over the summer, students had been given instructions on how to write an abstract and were trained in presentation skills, including how to prepare and present their research results.  All the students were well prepared and stood by their posters ready to discuss, explain, or answer questions about their topics.

The 2019 winners of the Medical Student Research Day poster session are:

First Place (tie): 

  • Kyle LaPenna (Dr. Lefer):  “Development and Characterization of a Novel Small Animal Model of Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction”
  • Adrienne Murphy (Dr. Miele) “Targeting Notch signaling in Cancer Stem-Like Cells of Triple Negative Breast Cancer”

Second Place (tie): 

  • Fallon Anzalone (Dr. Vance) “Transition of Pediatric Patients to Adult Sickle Cell Care”
  • Ryan Hoffman (Dr. Lau) “Prevalence of Accessory Branches and other Anatomical Variations of the Radial Artery”
  • Hayden Torres (Dr. Naljayan) “Evaluating causes of dropout in a large peritoneal dialysis program”
  • John Valentino (Dr. Simkin/Dasa) “Is poor bone quality associated with pain after total knee arthroplasty?”

Third Place (tie):

  • Jake Doiron (Dr. Wojcik) “Identification of host cellular target of the Zika NS2b-NS3 protease”
  • Ahmad Karkoutli (Dr. Arriaga) “The relationship between NF-2 associated vestibular schwannoma tumor size and the degree of hearing impairment”
  • Peter Morreale (Dr. Savoie) “Age is just a number: a case of multiple myeloma in a 29 year old male
  • Alex Robertson (Dr. Ronis) “Role of NOX4 Expression in Osteoblast-precursors in the Development of Alcohol-Induced Osteopenia”
  • Lauren Saunee (Dr. Marrero/Dasa) “Testing mechanisms and clinical outcomes of synovial fibrosis in total knee arthroplasty patients”
