I would like to extend a big thank you to Dr. Carrier for taking the time to discuss his research with the Translational Medicine students. He answered all of our questions enthusiastically, thoroughly and welcomed any sort of discussion on his research.
As a TMED student, something that really stood out to me was that despite the controversial nature of this topic, Dr. Carrier and his colleagues are still exploring the translational elements of this research. During the Grand Rounds presentation, he mentioned that during his research when his team identified patients with a high risk for cancer associated thrombosis, they gave those patients a sheet in the waiting room with information on the disease. This small step is invaluable in beginning the necessary education of cancer associated thrombosis that the public needs, and is an excellent example of clinicians performing knowledge translation of their work for the betterment of their patients.
