APOM is fortunate to partner with a wide array of programs through which high school, pre-health sciences, and medical students are matched with our researchers and clinician-scientists for a summer research internship.
A BIG shout out to our summer research interns and students who worked hard on a variety of projects this summer, both clinical and basic science. Their presentations on Tuesday, August 3rd were impressive. Also, a big THANK YOU to our incredible research faculty and staff who mentored them this summer.
- Saad Khan, M.S. – Medical Student from Creighton University, was matched to our program through the Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowship from FAER and is working with Dr. Austin Peters on a “Retrospective Review of Patient Outcomes and Biomarker Response to Ketamine Administration after Traumatic Brain Injury.”

- DeAuj’Zhane Coley, B.S. – Recent Graduate from Howard University, was matched to our program through the OHSU CDI Equity Internship and worked with Dr. Julie Saugstad and Grad Student Sierra Smith on “Potential for MiRNA Biomarkers to Uncover Early Changes in Alzheimer’s Disease.”
- Motu Sipelii, B.S. – Recent Graduate from Portland State University, was matched to our program through the OHSU CDI Equity Internship and worked with Dr. Selva Baltan on “Epigenetic Regulation of Mitochondrial Transmembrane Potential to Exert Post-Ischemic Protection.”
- Riane Bradbury-Huang – Senior at Salem High School, was matched through the Partnership for Scientific Inquiry and worked with Drs. Julie Saugstad and Ursula Sandau on “The role of FOXO4 and CDKN2A in the Cellular Senescence Pathway and Alzheimer’s Disease.”
- Miranda Bradley – Senior at Lincoln High School, was matched through the Partnership for Scientific Inquiry and worked with Drs. Julie Saugstad and Ursula Sandau on “The role of FOXO4 and CDKN2A in the Cellular Senescence Pathway and Alzheimer’s Disease.”
- Rachel Sinit, B.S. – Medical Student from Western Oregon Medical School, is working with Dr. Kim Mauer and CPC faculty/staff on “Patient Perspectives on the Perceived Effectiveness, Ease of Use, and Satisfaction of Different Pain Rating Scales for People Living with Chronic Pain.”
Congratulations to Dr. Tomas Lazo for having his work on diversity and inclusion published in the SEA newsletter.
Congratulations to Drs. Vy Le (CA-1), Tomas Lazo, and Brandon Togioka, and Ms. Haleigh Prather (MS-3). The team of 4 submitted a medically challenging case to the ASA which was recently accepted. The title is "Optimizing The Anesthetic Management Of A Patient With Active Do-not-resuscitate/do-not-intubate Orders Through The Preoperative Discussion Of Physician Orders For Life-sustaining Treatment (POLST)”.
Congratulations to four APOM residents Drs. Peter Bamikole, Viri Tapia, Chris Barton, and Shanette Go, all mentored by Dr. Leila Zuo, who got their abstracts accepted for presentation at ASA.
Congratulations to Dr. Amy Miller Juve for her co-authorship of the publication: "Beyond advising and mentoring: Competencies for coaching in medical education" in Medical Teacher. Reference: Meg Wolff, Nicole M. Deiorio, Amy Miller Juve, Judee Richardson, Gail Gazelle, Margaret Moore, Sally A. Santen & Maya M.

Congratulations to resident Dr. Tara Dhawan whose letter titled "Residents Leading Efforts to Address Systemic Gender Inequality in Healthcare" was among a select few chosen to receive an honorable mention in Academic Medicine.
Congratulations to Dr. Kasia Davis on her recently accepted manuscript "Phosphoproteomic response of cardiac endothelial cells to ischemia and ultrasound."
Congratulations to Drs. Mike Aziz and Katie Schenning for their inclusion in the recently accepted THRIVE (Trajectories of Recovery after Intravenous propofol versus inhaled VolatilE anesthesia) trial, which was chosen for funding by PCORI (Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute). The THRIVE trial seeks to determine if participants receiving propofol demonstrate improved quality of recovery without increasing the incidence of intraoperative awareness. The THRIVE trial is a multicentered, comparative effectiveness, patient-level, randomized controlled trial that will be executed across 12 hospitals in the United States. The trial is being led by Dr. Sachin Kheterpal from the University of Michigan and Dr. Michael Avidan from Washington University in St. Louis.
