    RSNA Research Medical Student Grant Recipient Goes Full Circle, Serves as Scientific Advisor to a New Generation

    2017 RSNA Research Medical Student Grant recipient Travis Robert Hallett, BA (left), is a first-year medical student at Boston University. Travis will spend his summer conducting a research project “Epicardial Adipose Tissue and High-Risk Plaque Features in HIV-Accelerated Coronary Artery Disease” at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, under the scientific guidance of Michael T. Lu, MD, director of research, Cardiovascular Imaging Division and assistant professor of radiology at Harvard Medical School.

    “I am interested in studying the long term effects of HIV on the heart using imaging biomarkers that may have a future diagnostic role,” Travis said. “The ultimate goals of the research will be to identify and track these biomarkers, and help identify potential interventions.”

    An RSNA grant recipient himself, Dr. Lu is proud to serve as the scientific advisor and mentor for this project. “As a 2005 recipient of the RSNA Medical Student Research Grant, I have a very good understanding of how important this award will be for Travis,” Dr. Lu said. “Like Travis, I was a medical student with a budding interest in academic radiology. This award solidified my commitment and was critical for launching my career.”
