Alumni Profile

Emily Lynch

"While it's one thing to be able to memorize organic chemistry mechanisms or biochemical pathways in the body, being able to understand why these molecules are interacting with one another or why this pathway is doing what it's doing in the body... that's what's going to lead to groundbreaking research that will change our world for the better."
