Emily Hemingway, a second year physical therapy student, received a third place award at the Midwest Student Biomedical Research Forum for her poster describing work she conducted with Laura Bilek, PhD, PT, while on a College of Medicine Summer Research Scholarship. Her Co-Investigators were Stephanie Borst, PT, Molly Lang, MS, Graham Sharp, PhD – GCBA, COM, Geoffrey Thiele, Internal Medicine, COM, and Daniel Shackelford and Carole Schneider, PhD from the Rocky Mountain Cancer Research Center at University of Northern Colorado.
Sponsored by the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and Creighton University Medical Center (CUMC), the forum offers an excellent opportunity for participants to receive critical review and recognition of their research from their peers and established scientists.
Many students attended from all over the Midwest – graduate students as well as a few professional students like Emily, who participated in projects during their professional education. Congratulations
