  • Niranjana Natarajan, (Pluznick Lab)

    I chose the CMP graduate program because I was interested in working in a field that would allow me to be involved in projects with high translational potential.

  • Oluwaseun Ogunbona, (Claypool Lab)

    By the time I was finishing my medical degree, I realized I wanted to be a physician who will focus on conducting molecular research. This prompted my decision to pursue a graduate degree in the biomedical research field. I chose the Cellular and Molecular Physiology program because of two major reasons. First, physiology is a science that deals with the normal functions of the body, and as such it provides a solid foundation for a career in laboratory medicine. Second, a molecular science program affords me the opportunity to acquire skills that are required for pioneering research which is a handy tool for advancing the frontiers of medicine.

  • Pingdewinde Sam, Claypool Lab

    I developed an interest in human physiology at an early age that led to getting a Bachelor's Degree with a Concentration in Physiology. Along the way, I fell in love with physiology on a cellular level and seized the opportunity to apply to the CMP Program.

  • Kelli Johnson, (Donowitz Lab)

    CMP supports my interest in Basic Science Research, something I am sad to say that other programs told me was considered unimportant. I am of the belief that if you don't understand how a system functions normally, you can't possibly study it properly in a disturbed situation.

  • Hao Jia, (Dawson Lab)

    I chose CMP graduate program because I thought I felt I was valued and welcomed by the program. I can always get substantial amount of attention and support.

  • Jungwoo Kim, (Dawson Lab)

    CMP graduate program provides focused yet diverse research topics on top of the ample Hopkins research environment.
