I've never been very interested in research, but I've done a couple things like that. Can you evaluate pls, does count as "research"? : - in college a prepared a presentation for a local conference about pulmonary askaridosis. It took me about 6 mounth, and, besides work in library, it involved frequent visits to the medical center to look up old patient charts and anatomy samples. - thing like that about alcoholism for the in-college conference.
