These are some of the words used to describe how JABSOM medical students felt about presenting their research projects at the American College of Physicians (ACP) 2017 Hawaiʻi Chapter Scientific Meeting.
“I think it is great being part of this community, and seeing where we can be in the future”, relates Lindsey Carvalho (JABSOM Class of 2019). “Seeing the upper-classmen being selected to do podium presentations is inspiring!” Lindsey was there to present a poster on her research project entitled, “Investigating Causes of Serious Adverse Events in Patients with Dementia in the Mind at Home Studies”, that was done under the supervision of faculty from Johns Hopkins University. “I really want to thank Dr. Kamal Masaki (Chair of the JABSOM Department of Geriatric Medicine) for the opportunity to participate in the MSTAR (Medical Student Training in Aging Research) summer research program.”
“It has been really interesting to see all of these clinical research projects, and the speakers and presentation topics are all great”, added Jayden Galamgam (JABSOM Class of 2019). “I also want to thank Dr. Takashi Matsui for being such an amazing research mentor.” Jayden worked with Dr. Matsui and others on his project entitled, “The Effects of Intracellular Calcium Level on the Propagation of Cell-to-Cell Cardiomyocyte Death in an In-Vitro Model”.
