UICOMP students present research projects
“In an era where we have decreasing funding available at either the NIH or at national levels for research, being able to succinctly tell them why your research is important, what difference your research is going to do and how it’s going to shape not only how the care is being provided but maybe new drugs or why it’s important is going to be very critical,” Aiyer says.
The research presentations ranged from developing a diabetes support group for adolescents to patient outcomes from mild strokes. Aiyer says the communication practice also can set students apart when applying for residency positions.
