Fourth-year students celebrated their residency matches and reflected on their time at Feinberg during an unconventional Match Day.
Northwestern’s Alpha Omega Alpha honor society chapter inducted 35 new members last week, including Feinberg students, residents, fellows, faculty and alumni.
Marlise Pierre-Wright, a second-year medical student, hopes to use her experience working in health policy and her medical school education to be an advocate for patients both in the clinic and in the federal government.
A recent Northwestern Medicine study has identified that a transcription factor protein called AP-1 regulates gene enhancers that may be responsible for promoting the development of uterine fibroids.
A novel genetic toolkit developed by Northwestern Medicine scientists may support the development of customized therapeutic interventions for a breadth of diseases, according to a recent study published in Nature Communications.
Neha Reddy, a second-year MSTP student, recently co-founded Northwestern’s first Health Hackathon, a two-day event focused on exploring challenges in the current healthcare system and designing creative solutions.
Kassandra Samuel, a third-year medical student, is interested in improving surgery — both when patients are under the knife and during their recovery.
A team of Northwestern Medicine investigators identified a specific gene as a key regulator of immune cells called invariant natural killer T cells, which may present therapeutic potential for the treatment of autoimmune diseases.
After a stint at the Department of Health and Human Services, Ariel Thames, a third-year MSTP student, is working to do the most good by using her policy knowledge and scientific acumen to channel research discoveries into effective treatments.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered that mutations in the largest genetic contributor to ALS leads to the dysfunction and eventual degeneration of certain specialized subtypes in the brain. The findings may lead to development of novel therapeutic interventions for the disease.
