The National Student Researcher of the Year (SROY) award recognizes an osteopathic medical student researcher with highly competitive experiences in clinical, translational, or basic science research, and who has been influential in advancing osteopathic medicine. The 2018 National SROY is Julia Schneider, second-year osteopathic medical student at New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYITCOM).
Schneider’s goal is to become an academic neurosurgeon and produce translational research that will directly impact patient’s quality of life. Her first academic publication was accepted while she was an undergraduate student, and now she has authored or co-authored over 20 research articles and publications. She currently is conducting brain tumor research at the Feinstein Institute of Medical Research and will continue her work there next year as a research fellow. Because of her dedication to improving patients’ lives and outcomes through her research, in addition to her many contributions to medical research, Schneider exemplifies the qualities deserving of the National Student Research of the Year award.
