Mercer University News

Mercer University School of Medicine (MUSM) recently held a ceremony to honor the recipients of the 2018 MUSM Awards for Excellence in Research. The awards recognize excellence in three areas of research: faculty research, faculty research mentoring, and student research.

The recipient of the 2018 MUSM Award for Excellence in Student Research is 4th year Columbus student, Ryan Guilbault. Guilbault has been involved in 11 different research projects while an MUSM student, ranging from diagnostic tests for acute rhinosinusitis to the impact of rural and underserved educational experiences on eventual practice location. He has successfully published his work in four different peer-reviewed journals and delivered seven conference presentations.

Please join us in congratulating Ryan!
