Medical Research Day
This program started in 2003 to provide research opportunities for medical students. Program Directors Dr. Fern Tsien and Dr. Jovanny Zabaleta help students to find mentors and conduct research at LSUHSC, the Louisiana Cancer Research Center, Children’s Hospital of New Orleans, University Medical Center, and clinics and research centers throughout the state. Students who received federal and regional awards to conduct summer or year-long research outside the state are also presenting their projects. During these programs, students conduct their own small research projects or collaborate on larger, on-going projects.
