Assoc. Prin Scientist, Informatics & Analysis, Merck Research Laboratories
At the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, I was provided with a remarkably broad foundation of knowledge that I draw upon every day as I contribute to projects in a variety of disease areas. Additionally, the department instilled in me an enthusiasm for scientific discovery, as well as the patience and discipline that accompanies it by necessity.
As a graduate student, I worked in an environment that encouraged development through independent thinking, and the success and failure that accompanies it. This has allowed me to continually advance in an ever-changing research environment, and I owe this success to my peers and mentors at the Department of Physiology and Biophysics.
