CTMHR Undergraduate Research Program Fellows Complete the 2016 Summer Program
On Friday, July 29, 2016, the ten week summer portion of the Undergraduate Research Program concluded with the students’ final presentations. The Undergraduate Research Program, directed by David Lewis, MD and coordinated by John Enwright, PhD, Debra Montrose, PhD and Lisa Murphree, engages undergraduate students in translational mental health research, giving them the opportunity to work full-time collecting and analyzing data for a research project, participating in journal clubs, shadowing mental health clinicians and attending research seminars and didactic sessions on research strategies, ethics and career development. Students also participated in the Department of Psychiatry Research Day.
