Whiz Kids: Investigating healing mechanisms in the oral mucosa

Over the past week I've been showing off projects from Stanford's Clinical Anatomy Research Scholars, a program that brought 15 interns to campus this summer to do research alongside faculty in a variety of fields across biomedicine.

In this final installment of the "Whiz Kids" series, high-school student Julia Gross does a wonderful job explaining the research she did on the healing mechanisms in the oral mucosa.

The CARS program is based in the Division of Clinical Anatomy and is directed by W. Paul Brown, DDS.
