Four students have been selected as recipients of the
Sarah Morrison research awards for January 2007. Research
awards are given through the School of Medicine’s student
research program.
The students, their research proposals, and mentors
Sarah F MS 4, “Understanding the effect of the
neutrophil on Staphylococcus aureus beta lactam binding
sites through use of a neutrophil-like cell line HL-60,”
mentor: Betty Herndon;
Jessica G, MS 5, “Pleurodesis mechanisms: VEGF
and degree of toxicity among talc and doxycycline,”
mentor: Betty Herndon;
Hayley G, MS 4, “Multicolored Asian lady beetles
and their allergenic antigens,” mentor: Betty Herndon.
Sarah (that's me) MS 5, “Knowledge of reproductive
physiology and contraception in adolescent women,”
mentor: Patricia Kelly.
The award recipients are selected quarterly by a
committee chaired by Agostino Molteni, M.D., Ph.D.,
professor of pathology and director of student research.
“The quality of these four proposals was excellent,”
Dr. Molteni said. “Three of these proposals involve
basic research in the laboratory that offers an excellent
opportunity for translational research. The fourth proposal
is an extremely interesting project related to both medicine
and sociology.”
