It was truly a SUPER summer for these students! The Summer Undergraduate Pharmacology Experience in Research (SUPER) program in the LSU Health Shreveport Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Neuroscience Department wrapped up last week with a poster session where students presented their summer research projects. Four undergraduate students from colleges in Louisiana, Florida, Kansas, and New York spent eight weeks at LSU Health Shreveport interning in the research laboratory of an LSUHS faculty member who served as their mentor. In addition to their research projects, students participate in laboratory research experiments and attend weekly lectures on topics that will help prepare them for success in research-intensive doctoral programs and their future careers. The SUPER Program is funded by ASPET, Society of Toxicology, LSU Health Sciences Foundation Shreveport and the LSUHS Department of Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Neuroscience.
Oh happy day! Looking at the smiles of Juan Zuniga, his family, the LSUHS physicians and Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport nurses who cared for Juan after he was shot twice in the chest almost five years ago it is hard to tell who was the happiest. These smiles were captured at the dedication of the ECMO Center of Excellence at the Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport Academic Medical Center in honor of the Zuniga Family. Juan and his family graciously raised funds earlier to purchase another ECMO machine. ECMO is short for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. It was an ECMO machine that played a key role in saving Juan's life after he lost a lung as ECMO allowed his remaining lung to heal. The generosity of the Zuniga Family has already saved numerous lives as the ECMO was delivered shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic.
