    Zaven entered MSM’s Biomedical Sciences Program in 2009.

    “MSM is a great place to study, train and eventually fulfill your aspirations of becoming a leading scientist, medical doctor, or health professional and most importantly develop as a positive contributor to the global society. What I enjoy most about it is the willingness of the faculty and students to help you achieve your goals, the exposure to numerous opportunities for personal and professional advancement, and a relaxed albeit productive atmosphere."

    Research Interest:
    My interest is in all aspects of Human Physiology; however my research is focused on the function of ionic channels in macrophages which might contribute to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. Currently, I plan on integrating basic science research (Ph.D.) with clinical and translational research (M.S.C.R.) to eventually become a leading translational scientist in cardiovascular research. Ultimately, by challenging myself and relentlessly seeking improvement, I aspire to be a leading cardiovascular scientist, inspiring and uplifting others to fulfill their potential through teaching, community involvement and when all said and done, hopefully contribute monumentally to the fields of health, science and our worldwide community.
