On April 9th, 2018 the BU Department of Neurology hosted its Fourth Annual Carlos S. Kase BU Neurology Research Symposium. Dr. Michelle Kaku and Dr. David Greer, Professor and Chair, welcomed the guests on behalf of the department. Dr. Carlos Kase was presented with a plaque in honor of his many years of service and dedication to the BMC patients.

The Symposium highlighted the clinical research programs for BU medical students, residents and fellows in the Department of Neurology. Over 90 attendees at the conference included faculty, trainees, students and alumni who heard presentations from senior residents that ranged from Triptans and Migraine to Sound Inhibition in the Motor System.

This year we were honored to welcome our keynote speaker, Dr. Priya Garg, the Director of the Office of Medical Education and Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs for BUSM. In “Finding the Path to Competence and Entrustment,” Dr. Garg shared her thoughts and insights into our learners across the continuum from undergraduate medical education to graduate medical education, and how to better prepare medical students to transition to the professional responsibilities of residency. Dr Garg also discussed the BUSM specific future directions in competency based education.

Dr. Jesse Mez received an award for his outstanding research contributions to the Department of Neurology at BUSM. Dr. Panagiotis Kassavetis, senior resident at BU Neurology, was presented with Resident Research Award. Daniella Sisniega and Steve Han received Medical Student Research awards.

The evening concluded with a poster presentation featuring research and scholarly work by our medical students, residents and fellows.

We look forward to seeing you at our future neuroscience symposia!
