BA, New York University

My first research experience was in the lab of Hannah Klein at NYU Medical School, investigating DNA damage repair mechanisms using yeast genetic approaches. This encounter sparked my interest in research science and genome integrity. I wanted to continue my studies with a PhD because I wanted to learn how to tackle a research project independently. I chose Gerstner Sloan Kettering because of the size of the program, the personal attention, and the interactions between its staff and the students. In addition, Memorial Sloan Kettering had many labs that were potentially a good fit for my research interests.
