LECOM students lauded at Research Day

Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine students and faculty, along with Millcreek Community Hospital residents and other regional participants, displayed the results of myriad research endeavors Thursday, Oct. 23, during the school’s Research Day event.

Students gather in the LECOM atrium to view poster presentations during the Research Day event at the school.

The event included a morning poster presentation in the school’s atrium, where onlookers learned about the results of the presenters’ research endeavors. During the afternoon, presenters delivered lectures about their research, and a panel of jurors awarded prizes to the top researchers.

Gannon, and third prize was awarded to second-year medical student Holli Martinez.

During the lecture session, fourth-year medical student Gens Goodman took top honors for his project, titled “Incidence and Epidemiology of Combat Injuries Sustained During “The Surge” Portion of Operation Iraqi Freedom by a U.S. Army Brigade Combat Team.” Second prize went to first-year medical student Michael J. Tranovich, and third prize went to fourth-year student Jennifer L. Chan.
