Abstract: Murmur is a yearly magazine published by MMSA with informative information and interviews on different aspects of medicine according to the theme chosen. Murmur is an esteemed publication recognised by the local medical community and by IFMSA which is the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations. This year, the theme chosen was “Research and Innovation”. Using this theme, the team wanted to promote research especially in the field of medicine. Thanks to research, Medicine has changed drastically over the last few years, coming up with new ways of treatment which were thought impossible before. In Murmur 2015, the team wanted to feature research that is currently taking place hoping that it can help encourage more people especially medical students to take up research as this can help change the way doctors treat patients and even how patients can treat themselves. Last but not least, the team also wanted to raise awareness on how technology in Medicine is improving. Thanks to innovations in medical technology, patients can now be more conscious about their health through their smart devices, such as, their smartphones, tablets and wearables.
