Undergraduate to present paper at national meeting
Madeline Grade, a premedical student in the Barrett-Mayo premed scholars program, was chosen to present a research paper at the American Academy of Neurology annual meeting. “This is a tremendous honor, as only a very small number of abstracts are selected for platform talks as opposed to poster presentations,” said Dr. Katherine Noe, the Mayo neurologist who mentors Grade. “She’s an exceptional individual, extremely bright and a real self-starter.”
The AAN presentation will take the 20-year-old ASU biomedical engineering junior to Honolulu where she’ll present her work on the counseling of women of childbearing age who receive valproic acid, a seizure-treatment medication which can also cause birth defects. Grade says she loves clinical research and would like to be both a physician and a researcher.
