Cox is a professor and chair of the MSU Department of Physiology. His chief research interest is neural plasticity, which is the brain’s ability to adapt to changes in inputs and is essential for brain development and function. A goal of his research is to gain insight into pathological conditions such as epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease, as well as developmental brain disorders such as Fragile X syndrome and autism.

“Kettering's PreMed program is thrilled to be part of this lecture series,” said Stacy Seeley, PreMed advisor at Kettering University. “Our students will be able to interact with experts in the medical field, learn about the various areas of medicine, and make connections with faculty members.” 

Michigan State University College of Human Medicine reserves two seats each year for eligible Kettering University premed majors.  As part of this relationship, the MSU College of Human Medicine has created a community medical lecture series for interested students, faculty and staff at Kettering. The Your Health Lecture Series is sponsored by Kettering University, University of Michigan-Flint, Mott Community College, Genesys Health System, Hurley Medical Center, McLaren Flint, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and is open to the greater Flint community. 

“This has furthered our strong collaboration with MSU's College of Human Medicine and strengthened our standing in the medical community,” said Dr. Patrick Atkinson, premed advisor at Kettering.

Students at Kettering can also complete the necessary pre-requisites for entrance into medical school by majoring in biochemistry or chemistry. Kettering’s co-op educational model extends to students interested in medicine as the school offers many opportunities for experiential learning in hospitals and laboratories both locally and nationally.
