CCTI and VP&S Student Nathan Suek Honored for Research Achievement

At the 2023 Student Research Day, 79 medical students at the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons (VP&S) presented their research to colleagues, fellow students, faculty, and leadership. The presentations included research posters with explanations of the students’ methodologies, results, and inspiration. Twelve projects won awards in four categories: Summer Research, Scholarly Project, Research Year, and MD/PhD.

“The caliber of research presented by the Columbia medical students reflects the excellence of our students, as well as the spectacular science conducted by our faculty and their commitment to mentorship,” says Anil Lalwani, MD, associate dean for student research.

Nathan Suek, M4 student at VP&S and CCTI researcher, was awarded first place in the Scholarly Project category for his poster presentation, “Treg engineering to promote tolerance for xenotransplantation” (mentor: Megan Sykes, MD). For more details and a list of the other winners, see the link below.
