Evan C

- Research Program Mentor

MD candidate at University of South Carolina


Medicine, Healthcare, Biology, Chemistry, Medical Technology, Information Systems


I am a medical professional with a diverse portfolio of medical, community service, and IT-related experiences. I am especially interested in medicine, the practice of medicine, and medical ethics. Currently, I am pursuing an M.D. at University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville. In my free time, I like to run, read books, listen to classical music, play racquet sports, and scuba dive. Diving is by far my favorite hobby. I obtained my Open Water I certification in 2021 and my Nitrox (Enriched Air) certification in 2022.

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Glymphatics: A Tiny Waste Management System in the Human Brain

The glymphatic system is a newly discovered system in the brain involved in waste clearance in the central nervous system during sleep. This project is a review of the current literature on the glymphatic system including its anatomy and pathophysiology, monitoring methods, and connections between the glymphatic system and nervous system pathological symptoms.

First, Do No Harm: A Primer to Medical Ethics

This research project explores the importance of the principial phrase "primum non nocere" or "First, do no harm" in medical ethics and the historical development of the practice of medicine.

Teaching experience

I have mentored high school students in the MedEx Academy internship program. I have also mentored/tutored undergrad pre-meds and health science majors.
