... Fareeda Hussain, BSc, Mayo Clinic Medical School, who received the 2010 AGA Research Foundation Student Abstract Prize.

“As a first-year medical student, the entire research process has provided me with a translational mindset that will prove valuable in both the clinic and the laboratory. This experience has done much to broaden my understanding of scientific research and deepened my interest in scientific innovation that leads to better health care. It has facilitated the development of skills necessary to deal with new challenges and responsibilities that lie ahead in a career in medicine. It has also fueled my desire to pursue academic medicine as an integral part of my medical career. To this end, I hope to continue my research on the utility of stool DNA testing in colorectal cancer. I'd like to thank the AGA for their support in my research endeavors and for their continued support of student-generated research."
