Trainee Research Day 2019 

 

Research-Day-2019-3.jpgThe Ohio State University College of Medicine hosted the 18th annual Trainee Research Day on April 11 at the Biomedical Research Tower, where 274 research trainees presented their projects. All trainee levels and fields were represented. Undergraduate, graduate, medical and MD/PhD students in the College of Medicine, along with postdoctoral fellows, researchers, clinical residents and fellows displayed their work. One hundred forty-seven faculty judges assessed the poster sessions.
 
Graduate trainee Julia Mazzarella, PT, featured her project, which investigated the differences between infants with neonatal stroke and infants of normal development. After performing an analysis of their upper body movements, she found that there were disparities in the normality of movements between infants diagnosed with cerebral palsy and those who were not.
 
Graduate research associate Janell Pisegna, OT, was another presenter. She explored the effects of fruit and vegetable intake, food insecurity and social functioning in breast cancer survivors. She found that better social functioning is positively associated with fruit and vegetable intake while being negatively associated with food insecurity. “Clinicians should be mindful of these factors and utilize oncology dietitians to provide intervention,” says Pisegna.

A keynote speaker and two lecturers who are experts in the biomedical sciences imparted their insights on this day. Keynote Paul Tang, MD, MS, is an internist and vice president, chief health transformation officer at IBM Watson Health. He utilizes IBM’s artificial intelligence technologies to improve the health and well-being of individuals and communities. He spoke of translational artificial intelligence research.

There were two presenters for the State of the Art Research Update Lecture Series:

Lang Li, PhD, professor and chair of Ohio State’s Department of Biomedical Informatics, spoke of the learning health system framework in drug interaction and pharmacogenetics.

Deena Chisolm, PhD, director of the Center for Innovation in Pediatrics Practice and vice president for Health Services Research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and associate professor of Pediatrics in the College of Medicine, delivered “From Translational Research to Transformational Research: Frontiers in Population Health.”

The Allan Yates Memorial Trainee Speaker Series highlighted six student speakers representing each training category at Research Day: undergraduates, medical students, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, medical scientist training program participants and residents.
