NIH Medical Research Scholars Program Class with Jason Berglund and Andrew Lum

Congratulations to Andrew Lum, one of two dental students in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) 2017-2018 Medical Research Scholars Program Class (MSRP)! Andrew has taken a year off to dedicate his time to his research interests and will return next year to resume his fourth year as a member of the Class of 2019. He will be back in November to share more about what he is studying, but, in the meantime, he has given us a sneak peek into his experience:

“In just a few short weeks, MRSP has proven to be an incredible opportunity working with and learning from the brightest, most passionate researchers in biomedical science. Following in the footsteps of numerous TUSDM fellows such Jason, who have had tremendous success in the program is quite an honor.” –Andrew Lum

Jason Berglund, who has returned to complete his fourth year this fall, spent his time at MRSP studying the origin of tumor-induced osteomalacia, a rare disease characterized by benign tumors that overproduce a hormone called fibroblast growth factor 23 and, ultimately, leads to bone pain, fractures, and muscle weakness. Read more about his experience HERE and be sure to give him a warm welcome back when you see him in the halls!
