The Medical Student Research Program is lead by Ginny L. Bumgardner, MD, PhD. As associate dean for Research Education, Dr. Bumgardner leads the Medical Student Research Program, the OSU HHMI Med-Into-Grad Scholars Program, and Masters of Medical Science Program for residents and fellows in training at the OSU Medical Center.
Dr. Bumgardner's commitment to research education is based on the recognition of the value and perspective that her own scientific training provides her with regard to the care of patients, the fulfillment of pursuing novel research relevant to patients and the reward of interacting with and mentoring some of the next generation of biomedical scientists.
The Program Manager for the Medical Student Research Program, Bianca McArrell, has worked in research for over five years and has been a research coordinator and program manager for two federally funded grants at the OSU Wexner Medical Center.
