This summer, rising junior Colleen Bramwell, who is from Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies, participated in the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation (MCRF) Summer Student Research Internship Program. The goal of the 12-week program was to provide a mentored, hands-on research experience for college undergraduate and graduate students considering a career in research. Bramwell worked on a project titled “Modeling obstructive sleep apnea as a risk factor for venothrombotic events.” On August 14, Bramwell made a presentation regarding her research during a symposium at the MCRF Center in Marshfield, Wis.
Bramwell was one of 10 students selected from a pool of 1,000 national candidates for this clinical research study. She is an Honors College biology student. She plans to attend medical school after graduation.
