Takeaways

  • What is the Davidson Research Initiative?
  • Sara Levintow on her research project: “High-fidelity patient simulation has become a prevalent means of training for medical residents and creates a realistic environment in which medical procedures and techniques can be practiced and assessed. This summer, I am conducting a meta-analysis in order to quantitatively evaluate the effectiveness of high-fidelity patient simulation as a training method.”
  • Kelly Davis on her research project: “I am examining the combined effects of varying metabolic rate and ozone concentration on lung cells, in order gain a better understanding of how metabolism affects lung cells’ ability to protect against and recover from ozone induced oxidative damage.  All of this is towards gaining a better understanding of why it is bad to excercise on high ozone days/ poor air quality days.  Unlike most previous reseach done on the subject which involve whole animal studies, we are doing it a the cellular level working directly with the cells.”
