Why I chose PSTP:

I actually had my first translational oncology research experience at the University of Pittsburgh when I participated in a summer undergraduate research program, and since then I’ve conducted research on glioblastoma at City of Hope, squamous cell carcinoma at the National Cancer Institute, and now I’m back again where it all started! The PSTP will give me a year to conduct research relevant to my clinical interests in order to prepare myself for a future career as a physician scientist and has already helped me integrate the research mindset into my medical school education.
