Monika Farmer

Vice President
Master of Laboratory Animal Science

Hi I'm Monika. I am the vice president and a student in the MLAS program here at Drexel. I completed my undergraduate at University of Delaware in pre-veterinary medicine and dream of attending veterinary school after I complete my masters. I have always had a passion for animals and am so thankful that Drexel has opened a new field of laboratory animals to me. I think biomedical research is so important and am so excited to be a part of such a great community.

Jenique Klinkerth (INFD) - ICO GSA Executive Board Event Coordinator

 
Jenique Klinkerth

Event Coordinator
Infectious Disease, Year 2

My name is Jenique Klinkerth and I am the event coordinator of the ICO-Graduate Student Association. Currently, I am in my last year of my master’s program studying infectious diseases at Drexel University. My interests in research are antibiotic resistance and drug discovery. In 2018 I earned my Bachelor of Science in Biology at New Jersey City University. There, I gained experience by doing research in trying to find ways to prevent biofilm formation and create new antimicrobials for broad spectrum pathogenic bacteria. I genuinely enjoy learning about the pathophysiology of microorganisms and how the immune system responds. In the future, I hope to become an academic researcher or work in the industry of research and development for a well renowned pharmaceutical company. My mission is to be a part of the scientific community on the pursuit of innovative research in developing new therapeutic drugs to improve overall global health and wellness.
