Just the other night, our mentors, Drs. Walter and Vandenborne, hosted a going away party for me with our lab. I have been quite fortunate to be around a scholarly group of researchers, but more than scientists and physical therapists, they're simply good people. They're good people, motivated to help accelerate the finding of a cure for the spectrum of muscular dystrophies, from basic benchtop findings to logistical planning of the clinical trials.
As a student, my perspective of the lab's operation is narrow, but I've been able to have a glimpse into what it takes to run and lead a lab of this magnitude through the leadership of Drs. Walter and Vandenborne, and for that, I'm grateful.
Beyond professional connections, I've been fortunate enough to make some life long friends through this journey, and look forward to future professional collaborations with these friends! Thanks!
I'm a current MD-PhD candidate, working hard to help treat and manage muscular dystrophies
