Congratulations to MSM CTR Scholars

The Clinical Research Education and Career Development Program (CRECD) at MSM is pleased to announce that a record number of six scholars were sponsored to attend and present their research at the Association of Clinical Research Training/Society of Clinical and Translational Science (ACRT/SCTS) Joint Annual Scientific Sessions this week in Washington DC. Two scholars, Djana Harp, MD, MS and Baraka Floyd (MD and MS candidate) were research award winners and Lilly Immergluck, MD was a travel award winner. According to Alexander Quarshie, MD, who participated as a poster judge, this was a very competitive process and award winners had to be judged as excellent by three independent judges. Congratulations to these scholars and their mentors, and to the research award winners:

  • CRECD Phase II sponsored scholar Djana Harp, MD from OB/GYN; lead mentor Winston Thompson, PhD, Morehouse School of Medicine
  • CRECD Phase I and ACTSI TL sponsored scholar Baraka Floyd (MS candidate 2010 and MD candidate 2011); lead mentor Guillermo Umpierrez, MD, Emory University School of Medicine

The research topic areas are listed below, and highlight the significant community impact of the scholars' research:
