Results highlight need for more diverse populations in clinical trials Randomized clinical trials are used in medical research to help determine the effectiveness of new treatments. Although these trials are rigorously designed, they often include an underrepresentation of minority participants, making it difficult to assess whether trial results can be generalized for patients of diverse […]
As COVID-19 began to spread rapidly in spring 2020, a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE), including face masks, soon followed. Currently, N95 respirators are the most protective available face coverings for health care workers, but most individuals have to try on several different sizes to determine the most effective fit for them.
EnMed’s director of innovation, Dr. Michael R. Moreno, recently received a Presidential Clinical Research Partnership (PCRP) Grant for his work to improve device-based therapies for patients in end-stage heart failure. The grant provides funding of up to $200,000 over a two-year period to stimulate new collaborations between Texas A&M University researchers and clinical partners. Moreno, […]
Histology, the study of the microscopic structure of biological tissues, is often a difficult subject for medical students because of its visual nature. This challenge led EnMed associate professor, Dr. Ian Murray, to study the use of eye-tracking as an aid for the class. More than 10 EnMed students also participated in the pilot study […]
