Bench-to-Bedside research in infectious disease was the timely topic of a virtual workshop for undergraduates hosted by Arkansas INBRE (IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence). INBRE, which is directed by the Department of Physiology and Cell Biology’s Dr. Larry Cornett, sponsored the event for Arkansas college students who are interested in careers in medicine and biomedical research. Dr. Tom Kelly of the Department of Pathology did a great job organizing the workshop, and many faculty members lent their expertise to clinical case discussions, interactive sessions on infectious disease topics, and a panel discussion focused on aspects of COVID-19.
Congratulations to: Drs. Juan Carlos Rico and Robert Bradsher in Internal Medicine; Dr. Amanda Novack (UAMS/Baptist Health); Drs. Karl Boehme, Roger Pechous, Jon Blevinsand Mark Smeltzer in Microbiology and Immunology; Dr. Samantha Kendrick in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Dr. David Ussery in Biomedical Informatics; and Dr. Bobby Boyanton in Pathology.
