The following posters were presented as part of the 2018 MMCRI Summer Student Research Program. This program offers undergraduates and medical students a unique opportunity to conduct research in diverse clinical and biomedical science fields during the summer months. During the paid ten-week program, students participate in mentored independent research projects either in our state-of-the-art research facility, or working with physicians in a hospital setting to impact patient care or the outcome of treatment. Students also attend lectures and workshops featuring topics including bioethics, animal use in biomedical science and scientific presentation skills, and have the opportunity to attend presentations by guest scientists and MMCRI faculty. All students give a final presentation, which in 2018 involved a three minute oral presentation called a “Three Minute Thesis” as well as a scientific poster presentation. All authors have an affiliation with MMCRI, unless otherwise noted.
