"My lab is interested in natural products. In other words, we're interested in molecules that we get from nature. If you go to a hospital and you look at the list of drugs they prescribe to patients, you'll find that roughly 75 percent of those are derived from natural products. Those drugs are not something that chemists have invented. They're made from molecules that we've borrowed from nature."

"The IHS program gave me the opportunity and flexibility to take classes that I am interested in and provided me the chance to figure out what I truly want to do. It gave me the ability to shadow more people in different fields and offered me more experiences."

"I built some great relationships with the faculty here. Two people in particular, Dr. Blanche Young and Christy Oldham, were instrumental to my success. Whenever I had a question, they were there to help me out. They helped me think through problems and showed me different ways to study. My advisor, Dr. Olimpia Meucci, was also a great resource. She always reassured me that everything would be alright and presented me with every option for getting into medical school. That's what I really like about Drexel. They foster this mentorship and encourage a personal relationship with the advisors."

"Graduate College Shines a Light on Outstanding Student Achievements"

At this year’s Graduate Student Day, the Graduate College and the Graduate Student Association joined together to honor the work done by Drexel students in the classroom and in the community. (June 01, 2017)

"Drexel Researchers Help Provide First Glimpse at Organelles In Action"

Researchers at Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development are getting a first glimpse at the inner-workings of live cells thanks to a new microscopy technique pioneered by Nobel laureate Eric Betzig with help from engineers at Drexel University. Their method uses grids of light that activate fluorescent color tags on each type of organelle — the result is a 3-D video that gives researchers their best look at how cells function. It will allow scientists to better understand how cells react to environmental stressors and respond to drug treatment. (May 24, 2017)

"Invented at Drexel: Startup Companies to Showcase New Drug Treatments at the Coulter Investment Forum"
