My honors program work culminated with the defense of my honors thesis and the publication of several peer-reviewed articles. I am certain that the in-depth knowledge of cardiac pathophysiological processes learned in the lab translated readily to clinical insight and will make me a better physician." -- Joshua Lader, Class '09
