Why I Chose Einstein  

My P.I. in Belgium got his Ph.D. at Einstein, actually in the same lab I worked in. So I knew that the school was good.

What’s Exciting About My Research at the Moment  

There’s a certain drug that appears to block the infection of HIV in women. With a [viral] subculture in mice the drug works beautifully, but when you take it to clinical trials in humans, it doesn’t work. Apparently seminal fluid alters the drug. My lab jumped in and showed how it works for HPV (human papilloma virus), too, and then we tried to figure out what it is in seminal fluid that interferes with the drug.

Best Thing About Being a Student at Einstein  

The community of support. My relationship with my mentor was very important to me. I had a full [faculty] advising committee that I could contact whenever I had a need. And every Friday, we had a schoolwide "happy hour". I could talk outside the lab with postdocs and faculty about how they went from graduating to postdoc to getting a lab. They gave me their best advice on how to get there.
