A record 119 summer undergraduate research fellows (SURF) competed Aug. 6 in the College of Medicine’s Summer Capstone Poster Symposium. The winners are:

First Place:

·         Kyle Carlson of Fort Wayne, Ind., "Analysis of Magnetic Susceptibility Artifacts Produced by Materials in Catheters During Magnetic Resonance Imaging.”

Undergraduate summer research fellows work with a UC mentor on a biomedical research project during their tenure in SURF program, designed to encourage interest in biomedical research at UC as their college of choice for graduate or medical school. The capstone experience of the summer includes a poster symposium, which provides an opportunity for the fellows to compete in a judged poster presentation of their research.
