Frank Low Research Day 2015
Frank Low Research Day provides a forum where faculty and students can be exposed to the latest research interests and activities of their colleagues. Held for the first time in the spring of 1981, Research Day was dedicated in the name of Frank N. Low, Ph.D., upon his retirement as a gesture of recognition for his contributions to research at the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences.
Every year for the past few years, we have had surgical residents submit their abstracts to the Frank Low Research Day held every spring at UND in Grand Forks. This year, Drs. Eric Anderson, PGY IV; Zachary Ernst, PGY IV; Daniel Persinger, PGY III; and Travis Swartz, PGY III, participated. Dr. Anderson’s project was titled “Experience with New Oral Anticoagulants for the Management of Post-Operative Atrial Fibrillation After Isolated CABG.” Dr. Ernst’s project was titled “Incidental Non-Functional Recurrent Parathyroid Carcinoma in the Setting of Multinodular Goiter: A Rare Presentation of a Rare Malignancy.” Dr. Persinger’s project was titled “Follow up of Biopsy Proven Melanoma in a Community Hospital: Who is Doing the Biopsy and is Appropriate Care Being Provided.” Dr. Swartz’s project was titled “Medical Supplies Exposed to an Environmental Control System Failure.”
