Wheaton, specifically the biology department, prepared me so well for law school and business school.
I feel incredibly blessed that God opened up this opportunity at Cerner Corporation for me, and for the solid foundation that the Wheaton College Biology department gave to me.
My experience at Wheaton prepared me well academically for graduate school, a postdoc and other research and academic positions.
As a biology major at Wheaton, the classes were rigorous and challenging, while our purpose remained fully committed to Christ. After Wheaton, I went to medical school, completed an MBA in health administration, and finished my residency in emergency medicine.
I am a doctoral candidate (MD) at the Medical School for International Health at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. After graduating from Wheaton, I obtained my Masters of Public Health and worked for Samaritan’s Purse in Bangladesh, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Niger.
My formal job title is "Research Assistant I". I am a research assistant in the lab of Dr. Sattva Neelapu in the Department of Lymphoma and Myeloma at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston Texas. I am researching CAR T-cell Therapy, which is a type of immunotherapy where you take the patient's own T-cells and change them to be able to recognize the lymphoma.
