Alumni Perspectives

"One of the highlights of my fellowship was presenting my work at the American Society of Hematology conference and getting to meet and learn from top researchers in the field. I'm very grateful to HHMI for giving me the opportunity to be immersed in research for a year, and I would strongly recommend the program to any medical student considering a research career."
