Honor for research

February 25, 2009 —

graysebestoDMU D.O. student Jason Sebesto was recently selected as one of five (FIVE out of 235 entries) winners of the American College of Physicians 2009 National Medical Students Abstract Competition.

He will present his abstract “MRSA Detection of Colonized Needless Catheter Ports Using Real-Time PCR” at the April convention. 

Jason began this research project with Jeff Gray, Ph.D., assoc. prof of micro/immun, as part of the DMU Summer Research Program which DMU students and current undergrad students can apply for now!


Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
