News and Honors

The Medical Student Summer Research Program is committed to excellence, which is why we support and encourage our Mescher Scholars to achieve the highest levels of academic research accomplishment.

In that spirit, we are excited to congratulate 2016 Mescher Scholar Lauren Ward, who competed at the Minnesota Chapter ACP Meeting with her summer research project entitled “Analysis of the intracellular niche of a phagosomal pathogen in the context of Salmonella enterica infection in mice,” and won the Medical Student Research/QI portion of the session. Lauren traveled to the National ACP Meeting, held in San Diego, CA from March 31 - April 1, 2017, where she placed as the sole finalist from Minnesota. Congratulations Lauren!
