Drexel Graduate Students Marc Hem Lee (Biomedical Studies) and Carlie Mendoza (Cancer Biology)

Drexel Graduate Students Marc Hem Lee (Biomedical Studies) and Carlie Mendoza (Cancer Biology) recently gave speeches at the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Professional Studies Pre-Commencement Award/Hood Presentation Ceremony on May 16, 2018.

"Keep following your passion. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Because once you find it, it will lead you to your purpose." Read Carlie's Speech

"I believe that the lesson remains—that we, with our similar stories of the adversities of our past, stories shaped by the words of yesterday, each have the capacity to choose differently for ourselves. Choosing these programs here at Drexel is proof of our empowerment and gives new meaning and perspective to the degree we will receive in a few days." Read Marc's Speech

Meet Emmanuel Henry-Ajudua, Drexel Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Rising Star

"It's a very friendly environment. The professors push you to be the best you can be, especially academically. They don't limit everything to the classroom. They're interested in your personal life and how you're coping with the stress of school." Read more about Emmanuel.

Kelly Whelan, Molecular and Cell Biology and Genetics Program Alum

Meet Kelly Whelan, Molecular & Cell Biology & Genetics Program Alum

"The one thing that really amazed me once I left Drexel is that I was never made aware of the fact that, as a woman scientist, I wasn't necessarily treated equal to men. I never felt that at Drexel. As I've gone out into the larger scientific community, it's become much more apparent to me, and I am now a big advocate for getting more women involved in science."

Meet Our Faculty - Priscila Sato, PhD

 
"We are interested in cardiac hypertrophy and how that develops into decompensated heart failure. We also have another line of research where we're looking at how diabetes leads to cardiac dysfunction. I have a couple of genetic mouse models. We want to really hone down in understanding potential mechanisms of how changes in the pancreas, particularly in the beta islets, impact the heart."
