Medical Student Research Day Awards

Carver College of Medicine students have many opportunities to conduct original research and nearly 100 medical students conducted research during the summer of 2010. These students presented their findings at the 42nd Medical School Research Day, which took place on September 10 in the MERF atrium. The Biochemistry Department is proud that Rose Lee, an M2 conducting research with Dr. Heather Bartlett, received the Edward Heath Award, sponsored by the University of Iowa Foundation, for her presentation, “Biological Effects of Alpha Smooth Muscle Actin Mutations Which Cause Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm. Andrew Baldwin, an M1, who is conducting research with Dr. C. Michael Knudson in Pathology, won the Biochemistry-sponsored Rex Montgomery Award, for “SOD2 Inhibition Results in Increased Markers of Oxidative Stress in T-Cell Lymphoma Cells.” Congratulations to Rose, Heather, Andrew and Michael for these well-deserved honors.
