Dr. Vin Sandhu (P ’18, 23) visits IRP

On May 3, 2019, Dr. Vin Sandhu, who specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery, came to visit the students in the Independent Research program.
The students loved his fascinating talk on how to design clinical trials, starting with interesting observations that are made in the field to developing an interesting and impactful scientific question that can be tested. In this casual round-table discussion, Dr. Sandhu finished by presenting a challenge to the students to design a study, which ultimately formed the basis of a study he recently worked on.

All alumni/parents with present or past experiences in scientific research have a standing invitation to back and visit the Independent Research Program. Our future scientists love hearing your stories, and these talks are formative to their careers. If you are interested, please reach out to Dr. Andrew Ying.
