“It was an unparalleled experience to perform basic science research with the help of the AAS Foundation Research Fellowship Award. I was able to study in depth a murine model of the liver ischemia/reperfusion injury with has implications for liver transplantation and sepsis.
With the help of my mentors Dr Geller and Dr Tsung, I published my findings in a well-known peer reviewed journal. It also provided me with ample chances to meet academic surgeons at various national meetings and learn invaluable lessons about how to become a successful surgeon-scientist.
I believe this award has been a great foundation for me as I start my academic career. I’m most grateful for the honor of being a recipient of this prestigious award.”
