Doran Mix is a fourth-year medical student at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. He was selected as a trainee in the CTSI's TL1 Predoctoral Training Program in 2011 and spent his "year out" researching how basic biomedical engineering concepts can be used to solve problems in cardiovascular medicine. His project, "Computer Assisted Surgery Tool for Hemodialysis Fistulas," spun off into additional projects which included studies on how ultrasound analysis can be used to monitor abdominal aortic strain, and how echo contrast decays under hemodynamic conditions. In this video, he speaks about his project and how it was a multidisciplinary and mufti-institutional effort.
Dr. Regis O'Keefe, Chair of the Department of Orthopaedics and the Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs at the University of Rochester Medical Center, speaks about his experience as a mentor in the CTSI Mentoring Program.
ResearchMatch is a secure, free, nationwide, web-based matching tool that helps connect researchers and study volunteers. It is funded by the National Institutes of Health and is managed by Vanderbilt University.
The University of Rochester CTSI was named the inaugural winner of the MatchMaestro Award from ResearchMatch, after enrolling the most volunteers (162) for research studies between September 15, 2011 and December 31, 2011.
