This past weekend, Jason Chiang, a medical student and research assistant in Dr. Chris Brace’s Tumor Ablation Lab successfully completed his first marathon in the Wisconsin Dells with a time of 2:46:20. This impressive time earned him the third place finish overall, and he was just 37 seconds away from the second place finisher.
The Tumor Ablation Lab has a tradition of marathon-running students. The previous medical student to work in the lab, Paul Laeseke, M.D., won the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon in 2006. Chiang currently is 14 minutes behind Dr. Laeseke, but assures us that his marathon career is just beginning.
