Kandis entered the Biomedical Research Program in 2009.
“This is an opportunity to grow and develop as a scientist with the aid of caring and challenging mentors and professors.”
My interest is immunology. I am glad that I am able to incorporate my interest into an area unfamiliar to me (i.e. Neuroscience, more specifically circadian rhythms). This program has allowed me to have a greater appreciation for the integration between fields. As a future physician this will help me to look at my patients as a “whole” and not “part” (disease only) because there are so many underlying key factors that seem small, but can be the cause of an individual’s condition.
