|Program begins between MUSC, France
year of the exchange program between the French University of Poitiers
and MUSC started off strong.
Joelle Roche, Ph.D., was instrumental in arranging for the first two
students, Charlene Le Gal and Anais Dinh, to come. The students spent
three months, May through July, in the laboratories of Naren L. Banik,
Ph.D., neurosciences, Harry Drabkin, M.D., hematology, and Robert
Gemmill, Ph.D., oncology.
Supriti Samanta Ray, Ph.D., mentored Le Gal and Roche mentored Dinh.
Both students completed their respective projects, which will enable
them to earn credits for their first year of the masters program in the
University of Poitiers. Le Gal also actively participated in other
ongoing projects in the lab and contributed towards compiling a review
with Varduhi Knaryan, Ph.D.
Ray said it was a great start for the exchange program for the mutual
benefit of both institutions, and it helps to promote collaboration in
teaching and research.
