- B.S. in Genomics and Molecular Genetics, Michigan State University
- Currently a second year student in the MGG MD-PhD program
As an undergraduate majoring in Genomics and Molecular Genetics at Michigan State University, I joined a lab that developed genetic tools in probiotic bacteria. During the years that followed, my interest in genetics and its potential applications to human health solidified. I joined the MD/PhD program at Wayne State due to the unique clinical experiences presented by the city of Detroit and the outstanding research opportunities in the School of Medicine. I am interested in the role that genetic variation plays in human health and how this information can be used clinically to better predict, identify, and treat disease.
