We want to congratulate and acknowledge the 4th year Medical Students who have worked with the Burn Research team throughout their time as medical students for a successful match day.
Sanjana Kurup of Howard University College of Medicine matched into Dermatology and will pursue her intern year in New York City at Hofstra/Lenox Hill and will then return to Howard University for her Dermatology residency. While a member of the burn lab, Sanjana studied hyperpigmentation and the usage of fractional ablative laser in burn hypertrophic scars. Her first author publication will be published soon in the journal: Lasers in Surgery and Medicine.
