Does doing a meta analysis count as research(unpublished)?
Hi all, I haven't found any posts on this(indicating I'm either an idiot for thinking of this as research or no one has had this situation) so I figured I'd try. I did a library/ metaanalysis for part of my bio class on the effects of stem cell treatment on MS and was wondering if this counts as doing research. It was with two other people, for a grade and in pubishable format but unpublished. Thanks, HeronsBeak (Source: Student Doctor Network Forums)

Is LOR from my P.I. neccessary? How to win affection?
There are older similar threads on the topic, however i was wondering if anyone knew how important it is to have a letter of rec from my P.I. I will be applying this next cycle.

I worked in stem cell research for nea...

MCAT Bio..What to Expect..Hope this Helps
Ok, I'm not a bad guy. I preach that the MCAT is by far the most important aspect of your application, but I never actually post on this side of the forum. I've got some time to kill before med school starts in the fall, and I just finished a paper. I decided to post the abstract and ask a few questions to show you guys what skills you need for the "new" MCAT Bio before I got out tonight. I hope this helps. Passage below and some questions after that. ------------------ Inflammation is linked clinically and epidemiologi- cally to cancer, and NF-kB appears to play a causa- tive role, but the mechanisms are poorl...

Stem Cells and Pain management
Anyone heard of this? I've got some rep hounding me about some new product that are stem cells derived from placenta's that I could utilize in my "pain blocks" according to them. I guess these could potentially be injected epidurally or intradiscally. Don't think there is anyway in hell I'd do this, but anyone hear of it? My initial google search for this lead me to the website for Laser Spine Institute, so I'm probably already permanently biased AGAINST it. (Source: Student Doctor Network Forums)

Please help me decide between two NIH IRTA positions.
I am a student deciding between two labs at NIH. Please help me decide which lab might be better for me. My goals for the future is either going into medical school or DMD Ph.D program, and I would like to be involved in research area that are highly relevant to both medicine and dentistry. Dental research areas are mostly neuroscience, microbio, immunology, cranial developmental biology, genetics, tissue regeneration, and biomaterials. Lab 1 Pros: - Research Area is relevant to my previous research exp at my undergrad institution, and I will be performing similar lab techniques - The lab is focused on neuroscience and...

UTSW vs UNC MD/PhD Program
Any opinions on making this choice?? These are the best school's I've been interviewed at. I'm trying to weigh the city, the research opportunities, campus/institution resources, the connections I could make, med school, preparation for being a resident, and being a part of a program that is well respected by many residency programs. Note: I am looking at cell/developmental/stem cell/cancer/bioinformatics/systems for my PhD. Possibly surgery, pathology, oncology, cardiology, or neurology for my MD focus. I'm open so it's hard to focus on a particular department to compare... I also like both cities, both very southern, n...

Is it worth putting cambridge as one of my choices (or even UCL?)
Hey, basically I'm your average guy with the same story you've heard millions of times before. I had a passion for science from a young age, my dad was a doctor and passed on a lot of his insight on to me and I have my heart set on medicine. I was influenced by other factors such as my brother being treated for sickle cell anaemia most of his life. And I felt more motivated visting him in hospital when he had acute lymphoblast leukaemia ( or something that sounds likethat). He went into remission after a few months of chemo but it came back after 6 months. He was older so he was treated at UCLH, and while visiting him ther...

My son is 7 years old and has the genes S1235R and G543X. He was born with Meconium Ileus and pancreatic deficiency. So far no accumulation of mucus in lungs. I pray 3 times a day for God to bring us the cure for CF speedily in our days. I was told once it is just a matter of time until it starts affecting the lungs. But I was also told that with the pipeline of drugs we have today, we can expect young children to live full lives, generally speaking. If the average CF patient life is 37 years, I think it is reasonable that in the next 30 years, life will be extended much further out. During this time, we may see Gene Ther...

Pulmonary Basic Research
I am currently trying to decide on whether to go into pulm/cc and was hoping for some advice about the research side of the field. So far it has seemed to me that alot of the basic research in the field is in its infancy (ILD, IPF, stem cell etc). Im hoping this means that there will be lots of future opportunties at the bench in pulm. However, I was also concerned about whether pulm research is hampered by the relative difficult trying to study such a complex organ. For those who are already at the bench do you find yourself limited in the types of experiments you can do because of technical limitations? Hopefully Im wron...

Reverse Lung Disease without Transplant!On
Blue, unfortunately the drawback will be that by using your own stem cells, all you are creating is new tissue. It will have the same CF as the old tissue and will still suffer the same issues. I don't want to be a bummer, and it might buy some time, but the new tissue will still have CF and be susceptible to the 'bugs' in the rest of your lungs On a side note, Peter might have more 'luck' as the liver damage is not caused directly by the CF mutation itself, so replacing with new liver cells 'could' eliminate the issue; much as a tx does.
