Working with the IC3 team and learning about how artificial intelligence can inform and change the healthcare landscape was an amazing opportunity.William Snead, UF College of Medicine, Class of 2025
The Medical Student Research Program (MSRP) is open to UF students who have completed their first year of medical school. MSRP students are able to work with IC3 researchers and mentors on medical AI research projects that will yield posters, presentations, and journal publications. Participating in the MSRP allows students to perform an extended research project within their four-year medical school curriculum and still graduate with their classmates.
Recently, IC3 members in the Departments of Nephrology, Surgery, and Health Outcomes and Biomedical informatics were all available to serve as mentors for MSRP research projects.

At the 2022 College of Medicine Celebration of Research, IC3 MSRP student Anjay Shah received a Semifinalist Award for his poster “Phenotyping Acute Kidney Injury Using Consensus Clustering.”
At the 2022 College of Medicine Celebration of Research, IC3 MSRP student Anshul Daga received a Semifinalist Award for his poster “Methods for Deep Phenotyping Adult AKI Patients: A Scoping Review.”
Quotes from MSRP Students at IC3
“I’m really grateful for this opportunity to work with such a wonderful team and group of mentors. This was my first exposure to machine learning and its clinical utility in medicine, so I’m excited to see what this team develops in the future.”—Anjay Shah, UF College of Medicine, Class of 2025
“Engaging with Dr. Baslanti and Dr. Ren helped broaden my exposure to leveraging the power of unsupervised machine learning techniques to find meaningful clinical correlations within board patient cohorts from existing and accessible health records here at UF. With AI utilization and capability accelerating both in healthcare and society at large, it has been great to gain exposure firsthand that can be applied to future projects.”—William Snead, UF College of Medicine, Class of 2025
