Notre Dame Research | August 22, 2016
Two Notre Dame undergraduate students—Anne Grisoli and Richard Felli—and two graduate students—Katelyn Ludwig and Steve Marczak—spent the summer of 2016 conducting laboratory and clinical research at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in New York. All four are recipients of the inaugural Precision Medicine Research Fellowships, which enable highly qualified Notre Dame students to live and work at one of the premier clinical research facilities on the East Coast.
The Feinstein Institute, which is part of the 22-hospital Northwell Health System, enrolls over 15,000 patients in more than 2,000 clinical studies each year. Through this new competitive program, students from Notre Dame who are interested in biomedical research have an unparalleled opportunity to experience such research first-hand and contribute to finding real solutions to pressing medical problems, ranging from lupus to sepsis to cardiac arrest.
