    Student Spotlight

     

    “I was born in Veracruz Mexico, but spent the majority of my early years in Guatemala City. When visiting Massachusetts for the first time, I was impressed by the diversity and the way people made me feel welcome, which led me to pursue my education here. Dr. Merav Socolovsky offered me the opportunity to join the UMass Chan Medical School family, by joining her lab as a research associate, an experience which changed my outlook on my future. I enjoyed working with Merav so much that I decided to commit to her lab as a PhD student. My decision was largely influenced by the strength of UMass Chan’s research community. There are strong scientists here, many of them leaders in their specific field of research, yet they are down-to-earth and highly approachable.

     

    The connections I have made during my time as a student go beyond my research colleagues; I have had the chance to meet people in many student body organizations some of whom have become good friends. Despite its size, the institution ensures my voice is heard and taken into consideration, which makes me feel comfortable. The collaborative spirit at UMass Chan, combined with the expertise of the professionals here, means that you can find many ways to accelerate your research interests while also beneficially impacting the work of others. The proximity of the hospital is another resource that makes it easy to translate your research to modern medicine, which impacts the lives of many.”
