(December 18, 2015) – This December, we hosted a successful Research Practicum Defense poster presentation. The defense is the culmination of our students’ year long work on a research project mentored by our faculty.  In the course of their projects, students learn advanced tools and techniques and apply them towards solving a practical problem from biomedical fields, thus contributing to scientific advancements.

This year, there were 24 high quality research projects.  The topics ranged from methods in next generation sequencing analysis to adaptive clinical trial design to epidemiological studies of congenital defects. The quality was praised by everyone involved, including our external collaborators.
