Carmouche and Sheng receive 2018 VTCSOM Outstanding Research Mentor Awards
Jonathan Carmouche, assistant professor of orthopaedic surgery at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, and Zhi Sheng, assistant professor at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, are the first-ever recipients of the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine’s Outstanding Research Mentor Award.
The school’s research domain team collected nominations from current students and alumni, looking for faculty who exhibit commitment to the mentorship of medical students in their research. Students and alumni nominated individuals who provided clear expectations and high standards for students to conduct original hypothesis-driven research effectively and provide opportunities for professional growth.
Carmouche and Sheng were recognized at the 2018 VTCSOM Medical Student Research Symposium, which was held on March 23 at the medical school.
