An endocrinologist by trade, he stumbled upon a very interesting effect that progesterone has upon human melanoma cells soon after setting up his lab last year. I wont go into great detail, but the cells appear to lose their adhesion capabilities, which somehow also results in negative proliferation. Today, we discussed the future of my research program and outlined the next year’s worth of...
Medical Specialty Aptitude Test →
From the University of Virginia Medical School, this is a pretty interesting tool to define your characteristics and personality in terms of successful traits found within certain medical specialties.

I’ve noticed that, since first being introduced to Osteopathic Medicine nearly three years ago, there is a very small web presence for the promotion of the field; even smaller is the general knowledge of Osteopathic Medicine by the average citizen.
