Frank Low Research Day
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, Dr. Chris Maki , PGY IV, and Dr. BreAnn Neiger, PGY III, along with Surgery Research Specialist Tonya Murphy attended. Dr. Maki's project was titled "Duodenal Injury-A level II Trauma Center's Perspective." Murphy's project was titled "Effects of DCA and Metformin on murine colon cancer growth and metastasis." Dr. Neiger's project was titled "Urinary concentrations of ADAM 12 from breast cancer patients pre- and post-surgery vs. cancer-free controls: A clinical study for biomarker validation." She was awarded first place in the Medical Resident Poster Presentation category.
