The 26th Elkin R. Isaac Student Research Symposium opens Wednesday, April 22, at 7:30 p.m. in Norris Science Center Towsley Hall, as international health expert and child neurology resident Samata Singhi, '05, presents the Symposium's Alumni lecture.
At Albion, Singhi's academic and co-curricular work in the U.S. and in India were the basis of an honors thesis that earned her the Maurice L. Branch Award for outstanding research and scholarship in economics. Singhi earned a master's degree in international health from the London School of Economics and Political Science then graduated from the medical school at Case Western Reserve University, where she focused on pediatric neurology. Singhi is currently chief resident for the Child Neurology Program at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School.
From 8 a.m. through 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 23, more than 100 Albion students will present research papers and other scholarship during the Elkin R. Isaac Research Symposium. The Symposium honors alumnus "Ike" Isaac, '48, who served for 25 years at Albion as a coach, professor and athletic director. Isaac later taught and served as athletic director for the University of the Pacific. The Symposium was established in 1991 by Isaac's former students and team members.
