We have started the MUSC Artificial Intelligence (AI) Hub. Part of our missions is to: Catalyze AI research at MUSC and its partners in pursuit of funding and leadership in the field both regionally and nationally. Also, to create productive relationships that produce high quality research and solidify MUSC as a leader in this field. We meet every 2 weeks to gather those performing this type of research at MUSC and I think it would be great to get medical students involved and give them an opportunity to connect with these researchers for potential opportunities.

Basic bench laboratory and translational research opportunities in the areas of Pediatric Cardiology/Congenital Heart Disease and OB-GYN/hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are available in the Lee Laboratory at the Darby Children's Research Institute. Our lab has had extensive and fruitful experiences mentoring several generations of pre-medical and medical students in basic cell and molecular biology as well as experimental embryologic systems (primarily mouse) at all levels of experience. More information about the laboratory and currently available projects may be obtained through our laboratory website, publication link and PI contact information.
An updated listing of lab publications may be found here.

MUSC Children's Health belongs to a collaborative of ~140+ children's hospitals (www.solutionsforpatientsafety.org) focused on preventing hospital-acquired harm (HACs) including hospital-acquired infections. Device removal is an important part of the bundles related to device-related infections. We have had many students participate in our quality improvement research in the past. Specifically in Spring 2020, we are looking for 1-2 students to observe rounds specifically for discussion related to device presence/removal in the intensive care unit in the mornings. In the afternoons we are looking for students to participate in real-time feedback for chlorhexidine bathing CH-wide, and real-time feedback for adjunct CLABSI bundles for high risk populations. We aim to pursue poster presentation at a national conference featuring the medical student's work related to these exciting harm prevention efforts. If you're interested, let's meet to discuss potential FLEX rotation focused on harm prevention in pediatric patients.

The Neonatal Nutrition Research Group at MUSC conducts research involving pregnant and lactating women and their infants with a special focus on vitamin D. We have conducted several clinical trials surrounding the vitamin D requirements of pregnant and lactating women and their infants and have ongoing studies underway. We have large databases that could be utilized to ask research questions specific to these patient populations.
